Kansas City World War I museum
Following our two day in the Kansas City area, where we saw the wonderful W.W. I museum and the childhood home of Amelia Earhart and a total solar eclipse, we headed up the Missouri River Valley on the Trail of Lewis and Clark.
Lewis, Seaman the Newfoundland dog, Clark and Mrs. T.
Highlights along the way were a number of great museums particularly at Council Bluff and Sioux City, Iowa. Also above Council Bluff is an interesting memorial to the only member of the Voyage of Discovery who died during the expedition.
Mrs. T. and Susan Rae at the memorial.
Next: Meet the man who built the exact replicas of Lewis and Clarks keelboats for Ken Burns documentary on The Voyage of Discovery.
Hi Troutbirder - they do look interesting museums - with some fascinating history attached to them ... let alone the views - gorgeous ... cheers HilaryReplyDelete
Looks like you had a super great time! :-)ReplyDelete
Anything to do with this subject is bound to be worthwhile.ReplyDelete
All that history and you saw the total eclipse of the sun? Super road trip.ReplyDelete
Wouldn't it be neat to follow their path all the way? Of course now days, bridges and roadways would block the way. Think I was born too late. Loved that Ken Burns series on this.ReplyDelete
As you know, I live on the Lewis and Clark path they followed to the Pacific. They spent considerable time in what is now the Big Hole valley, they named the river wisdom, I think, and a couple other names they no longer have.
Hope you and yours are well,
I love a roadtrip! And add in history...it's a win-win!ReplyDelete
