Big Lewis and Clark and Sacajawea Figures

Construction was going on in the area, and the road was partially closed, but we worked around it to make the stop.

The site also features a replica L+C+S keelboat, "floating" on a concrete river, that visitors can board.

Giant Lewis & Clark and Sacajawea Figures

In Keelboat Park, on the Missouri River just south of I-94, there are interesting interpretations of Lewis & Clark and Sacajawea, their trusty Indian guide. They are about 30 feet tall and brightly colored. Also nearby is a replica of an 1800s keelboat used by Lewis & Clark. [BS Meyer, 02/14/2013]
