Five Falls, not one, impeded the Expedition

We were following the Expedition's route in reverse from the coast to Great Falls. The Expedition arrived at Great Falls and were astounded. They expected one fall, but found five. They expected an easy portage of a few days, but it turned into a prolonged battle with ravines for eighteen miles. Today, the Missouri is dammed several times. Photographers: return here often because the lighting and cloud conditions change rapidly.
