Lewis and Clark Montana Loop

August 6-16, 2005
Missoula- Great Falls- Helena- Dillon Loop- 624 miles

Join us during this bi-centennial year of the Lewis and Clark's grand expedition, as we follow in the footsteps of the infamous Corps of Discovery.

Experience the incredible western landscapes they saw. We will travel in the historic direction in which they traveled, following the beautiful Blackfoot River (from "River Runs Through It" fame) through Rocky Mountain valleys and into the rolling hills and stark buttes of genuine cowboy country. After visiting the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Great Falls, we will cycle south past the "Gates of the Mountains" to Helena, Montana's capital. Continuing south to the headwaters of the Missouri river we enter the Big Hole and Bitterroot Valleys before returning to Missoula.

Bryce National Park to St. George, Utah- 411 miles

By starting out at the highest point of the tour (7652 ft.), our visit to some of the most spectacular scenery in the US is made considerably easier, not to say that you won't have a few hills during the week's adventures. We stay at Bryce, Capitol Reef and Zion National Parks, with a day off in Zion to hike the canyons. Along the route you can see the Grand Staircase, Kodachrome Basin, and an Anasazi Indian Village. We ride on one of the top 10 scenic highways in America. Our overnight at a guest ranch will be a special treat with western entertainment by a sunset bonfire.
