This summerís high adventure trip allowed Scouts and leaders from Troop 344 to paddle 150 miles along the scenic Upper Missouri River encompassing part of the historic Lewis and Clark expedition. Montanaís Upper Missouri River is an irreplaceable legacy of the historic American West and as such, it was designated a National Wild and Scenic River by Congress in 1976.  It is unquestionably one of the premier canoe trips in North America. This river passed through  spectacular scenery, interesting geology, and unique flora and fauna that required overnight camping on the river. The Upper Missouri has a rich and interesting history, including remnants of Native American habitation, Lewis and Clark campsites, still-standing old homestead buildings, fur trade sites, and steamboat landings. The wilderness character of the Upper Missouri River provided good wildlife viewing opportunities. The river was alive with waterfowl, including ducks, geese, and white pelican. Bald Eagles and Golden Eagles were a common sight. Whitetail and Mule Deer were seen along the banks, as well as bands of Bighorn Sheep on the steep sides. Beaver were seen swimming in the river. At the conclusion of the canoe trip, we toured Yellowstone National Park and visited Mount Rushmore.
