Lewis & Clark Trail
St Charles Missouri
I had planned to visit Edward and Pat Jones-Confluence State Park north of St Louis before leaving. Unfortunately spring flooding had closed the road - not the last flood-out on this journey for me. Although the Corps camped twice before reaching St Charles, river changes have left them under water. I didn't think there would be any photo opportunities - so, on to St Charles where a statue of the captains and Lewis's dog, Seaman , stands in Frontier Park. A sign in the park uses a Clark journal entry to date the Corps's departure farther up the Missouri River.
