The Approach to Lewis & Clark State Park

While on my Morning Hike

My visit to Lewis & Clark State Park near Williston is the highlight of the first week of my trip. It is absolutely beautiful here. The campsite is above Lake Sakakawea (they spell it different in North Dakota and only in North Dakota) and it is very peaceful.

This morning I took a 2-1/2 hour hike that started out on the beach at dawn and then eventually I hooked up with the Prairie Trail that wound up into the hills overlooking the lake.

The lake is actually part of the Missouri River but because of a dam is much wider and broader than when L & C came through.

I'm going to spend two nights here because I like it that much and then Saturday morning I hope to make my way into Montana.

By the way, when Lewis & Clark reached this area they had already gone further west than any other known white men. Hard to believe that was only two hundred years ago or so.
