Brad Winn spends his days at the Lewis & Clark State Historic Site in Hartford, so when it came time to take a vacation over the summer, he decided to head out west. Winn took the opportunity to further explore the trail Meriwether Lewis & William Clark took from the Riverbend to the Pacific Ocean. He will be talking about that trip Thursday night as a guest of the Historic Elsah Foundation.
The Lewis and Clark Journey of Discovery basically used the MIssouri River as their guide. Winn says the hilight of his journey was at a place called Lemhi Pass.
He says at certain points of the descent, the road was so narrow he could look out of his side window and see a drop of what seemed like thousands of feet just inches away from the edge of the car. Thursday night's talk will be at the Farley Music Hall at 7:30. It'is free, and so is the parking. Refreshments will be served after the lecture and a Question and Answer session.
