Lewis & Clark's Trail (Homeward Bound in 1806)Tuesday July 7, 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 homeward bound portion of the journey by way of the Missouri River. “Big Muddy” and its tributaries played a central role in the overall story of the expedition, accounting for almost 5000 miles of its travels and 18 of the expedition’s 28 months of explorations. Drawing on Lynn’s modern voyage by canoe and kayak down the length of the Missouri River, the program places special emphasis upon the Corps of Discovery’s 2300-mile descent of the Missouri River from Three Forks, Montana to the Mississippi and on to St. Louis.
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.
