Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean, preserves the tracking number and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center is located on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River in Great Falls, Montana.  The interpretive center honors the discoveries and accomplishments of Lewis and Clark during their two-year round-trip trek from St. Louis to the Pacific Ocean.

A central feature of the displays is a carefully constructed reenactment of the expedition's portage around the Great Falls of the Missouri River.  Recreating the scene was no mean feat. Transporting canoes, supplies and other equipment over land meant hauling everything by hand or by a hand-made wooden trailer and pulley system up rocky cliffs and mountainsides, through brush and forest and through miserable weather conditions. What was thought to be a few days' journey turned out to be a month-long endeavor as the men successfully negotiated their way by foot around five waterfalls, some of which were as much as 70 to 80 feet in height. To recreate this important scene, designers built a canoe out of foam and fiberglass and cast likenesses of actors posed at the point of action. Actors were required to hold their poses sometimes for more than 30 minutes at a time, while artists reconstructed the scenes based on Lewis and Clark's factual accounts.

On our way to Glacier NP in 2015, my wife and I stopped for a few minutes that turned into a couple of hours.  It was a wonderful facility.
