              Matching History with the Landscapes
                                           in Which It Was Born!

If you have a fascination with American History, you have come to the right place. Our goal is to provide you an opportunity to revisit the magical moments of history in the most beautiful American landscapes in which they were born. Learn something new about the old as renown humanities scholar Clay S. Jenkinson takes you back in time with insights yet to be told. During your week with us what you will enjoy and discover will not be found by the independent traveler. We will take you to remote off the beaten path locations, you will learn more about the past and its characters than you thought possible and we will introduce you to local flare. It is in our landscapes and in our people, past and present that makes America beautiful!  We will take you there.

This season Clay Jenkinson offers you a unique and rare opportunity to explore on location through the eyes of Captain Meriwether Lewis into a window of one of America's greatest explorations - The Lewis and Clark Expedition through the White Cliffs of the Missouri River and the Bitterroot Mountains in 1805 and 1806.  German Prince Maximilian and his Swiss artist Karl Bodmer followed in their footsteps 25 years later.  Clay will bring to light and tie together both epic journeys as you float through your own week of discovery along the Lewis and Clark Trail.
