Missouri River Headwaters

The confluence of the Jefferson River, the Madison River, and the Gallatin River all combine to create the Missouri River.
CaptainLewis described the scene pretty well when he wrote “the country opens suddenly to extensive and beautiful plains and meadows which appear to be surrounded in every direction with distant and lofty mountains.” This is also the location of Sacagawea’s capture and where she returned years later with Lewis and Clark.
