On our way down to Yellowstone National Park, we overnighted at a small state park called Missouri Headwaters. This is the place that marks the beginning of the Missouri River. Here, the Gallatin, Jefferson and Madison Rivers converge to become the Missouri. Lewis and Clark camped here and hoped to find a passage to the pacific. It was not to be. No through passage exists. Back then, it must have been quite beautiful. Today, it is still quite nice, but power lines crisscross the entire area. There is some sort of power generation plant nearby and semi’s travel through the park at 60 mph’s making deliveries to the plant. We did an early morning walk around here and were rewarded with a nice ground fog covering the area. I did manage a few nice images. A nice morning.
