Majestic scenery envelopes us this afternoon during a boat tour through the Gates of the Mountains. These spectacular limestone cliffs and sheer rock walls were described by Meriwether Lewis as “a most sublime and extraordinary spectacle.”


Day 6 : Yellowstone

This afternoon we arrive in Gardiner, Montana, the original gateway to America’s first national park. Yellowstone was established in 1872 to protect a large variety of wildlife and preserve the world’s most extraordinary collection of geysers and hot springs.
