Fort Peck Dam, Eastern Montana

If you stop anywhere near the Missouri River, you’re practically guaranteed to stumble upon a Lewis and Clark marker. We did just that at Fort Peck Dam in Eastern Montana.
We were cutting over back highways between Interstate 94 and the desolate Highway 2. A kind stranger in a restaurant parking lot leaned over my atlas with me. He pointed out the dam and told me not to miss it. The dam was built in the 1930’s under FDR.
The Lewis and Clark expedition camped at the site in 1805. It is incredible what they accomplished. Without maps they were able to locate and follow rivers. More astoundingly, they had to gather evidence and guess which river branches to follow until they reached the headwaters of the Missouri.
