Lewis & Clark's Trail (outbound in 1804 and 1805)Tuesday June 2, 2020
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
This presentation features photography from the length of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail and tells the overall story of the epic 8000-mile expedition from the Mississippi to the Pacific and back, but it focuses mainly on the outbound portion of the journey. Drawing on Lynn’s modern travels by mountain bike, the program places special emphasis upon the Corps of Discovery’s difficult 400-mile crossing of the Bitterroot Mountains in today’s Montana and Idaho, the last 180 miles down the Columbia River and along the Pacific Coast in today’s Washington and Oregon, and on to winter quarters at Astoria, the saltworks at Seaside, and over Tillamook Head to its point of farthest reach at Cannon Beach, Oregon.
John Lynn of Peoria has photographed all 2400 Illinois cities, villages, and towns. He has also hiked, biked, and canoed enough historic and scenic trails, roads, and rivers in North America and Britain to circle the globe. He has now shared his experiences with over 4000 audiences in three countries.
