GATES OF THE MOUNTAINS BOAT TOUR

On the Missouri River, not far from present day Helena, the hardy members of the Lewis and Clark expedition toiled to move upstream. Rock embankments made towing from shore impossible, and the deep channel forced the men to row rather than pole their boats forward.
From both sides of the river, limestone cliffs rose to a spectacular height of 1200 feet. "I shall call this place: "GATES OF THE MOUNTAINS"
