The Missouri River rivals that of similar size rivers like the Mississipi and the Danube, but is totally outclassed by the Yangste and the Nile. Still, it's a cute little river that does it's best, and that's all we can ask of it to do....More

Always love traveling across the Missouri River and learning the history of its vastness. The Lewis and Clark Expedition used the MO. river to get to the west coast on their exploration.

One of America's great rivers. From Lewis & Clark to the steam powered river boats that hauled people and produce from St. Louis and back. Beautiful great plains scenery along this river.
