Restless Rivers

Restless Rivers
Photograph by Ira Block

The confluence of the Grand River, on the right of the frame, and the serpentine Missouri is now five miles south of where it was when Lewis and Clark passed. The expedition camped at the mouth of the Grand, now on the outskirts of Brunswick, Missouri, according to the new map, where the two explorers climbed a nearby hill and enjoyed “a butifull prospect of Serounding Countrey.” The Brunswick site is the first officially designated Lewis and Clark campsite in the state.
