I Stood Exactly Where Meriweather Lewis Stood
Last week I had an opportunity that few people have been able to experience. And to do it on the anniversary of the original event made it even more special.
This past Friday (July 27th) was the 213 year anniversary of the Lewis & Clark Expedition's visit to the Bozeman area. On July 27, 1805 Meriweather Lewis stood on a cliff in what is now Headwaters State Park that would become known as Lewis Rock. 213 years to the very day, I got to stand on the same spot. Check out the pictures I took below. Here's what Lewis said of that moment in his diary:
. . . I walked up the S.E. fork (Missouri River) about a half mile and ascended the point of a high limestone clift from whence I commanded a most perfect view of the neighboring country." - Merriweather Lewis in his journal for July 27, 1805.
A big thanks to my tour guides Greg Gannon & Evan Hagenlock at the GCC Trident Plant for getting me to the spot. And also a big shout out and thank you to Melissa Gentner at GCC for setting it all up. I cannot thank you all enough for a moment I will never forget!
