Montana’s Birthplace

A comfortably cool summer day for a walk along the Missouri on the Fort Benton levee, in the oldest town in Montana. Nicely done paved history trail from one end of town to the other. Lots of information plaques and statues along the path to tell you with drawings and photos of the Fur Trading and Steamboat Days. We crossed over the first bridge to cross the Missouri which is now a nice public park. After our stroll, we took the trail to Old Shep’s grave up on the hill overlooking town. Got our daily steps done in a very pleasant and interesting way. Shep’s story, John Mullan and Lewis and Clark links below :
