Towing the keelboat

Towing the single keelboat used on the way west

Traveling west, the expedition moved against the current on the Mississippi and the Missouri Rivers—they often had to tow or pole the single keelboat and two pirogues they used for much of the westward journey.

Much of the filming of Lewis & Clark was done in boats and canoes; the film crew recruited white-water rafting guides from the Jackson, Wyoming, area.
