Tales From the Trail - Day 19 part 2

June 2, 2011

Today turned out to be a much better day than we have had for the last two days. After breakfast and then on the phone for 1/2 hour arguing with about charges for hotel changes we have had to make we finely got all that taken care of and then headed out to explore the town a bit.

At breakfast we were talking to some people who told us about the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center so we decided to go check that out. A really good museum and good movies of the Lewis & Clark Discovery Expedition. One movie centered on the fact that they had to portage their boats for 18 miles around the five falls that are in this area. After the museum we went in search of the 5 falls on the river. They are pretty impressive. For the Great Fall (that the town of Great Falls is named for) we had to travel way down a very narrow road through fields and fields of something growing. Not sure what it is but there is a huge General Mills Plant here so maybe wheat. They also have refineries and a huge electrical generator from the water power.

I will post some of the pictures on Facebook. Off to Lethbridge Alberta Canada tomorrow.
