I'm reading several books on the road, including the journals of Lewis & Clark, who explored the unknown and untamed West over 200 years ago. Few Americans ever beheld the wild mountains dividing the interior like a spine divides a back. Peeping through the pines, you can see the pristine waters of #LakeKintla and the peaks beyond. This picture I took on the first full day of summer, when the brilliant sun graced Glacier National Park.
Just got back to Great Falls after an amazing Leading X trip with @gutmonkey!!! So amazing to cruise down the Missouri River in Montana for the last 5 days with amazing members of our bleeding disorder community. This photo courtesy of @josephtorrey was taken in a slot canyon above the eagle creek campsite! #bebrave#montana#hemophilia#leadingx#rivertrip#canoeing#lewisandclark
The Schingoethe Center houses an impressive collection of rare books, one being the 1905 publication of “Original Journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition: 1804-1806; Volume 8,” an atlas reproduction. The book illustrates the route of the Lewis and Clark expedition and includes interesting commentary on the country and natives.

#portland Day 55, a visit to #fortclatsop . This is where Lewis & Clark, and Sacagawa & York (and company) wintered after their journey finally took them to West Coast.
My favorite part was seeing how giddy my wife and father-in-law were to walk their hiking trails. #100daysofportland
"...my ears were saluted with the agreeable sound of a fall of water...I saw the spray arise above the plain like a column of smoke...soon began to make a roaring too tremendous to be mistaken for any cause short of the Great Falls of the Missouri...the river was one continual scene of rapids and cascades which I readily perceived could not be encountered with our canoes..." -Meriweather Lewis, June 13, 1805
