Leaving Fort Benton on a short 80-mile drive through scenic country side to our destination of Helena MT. This a wonderful drive along the Missouri River.
Arriving in Helena, we boarded a jet boat for a cruise on the Missouri River through the area known as the Gates of the Mountains. Lewis and Clark floated along this section of the river and noted in their journals the wonders of this amazing area with 1200 feet high limestone walls. We were equally impressed by its beauty.
