Friendship Force Take a Lewis and Clark River Ride

Posted: Updated:

This weekend has been chalk full of Lewis and Clark with yesterdays Lewis and Clark Festival at the Interpretive Center, and today folks are gathered at the Interpretive Center for a ride down the Missouri just like the legendary explorers. "We're going up to the Missouri River Canyon up above Cascade between Cascade and Craig, we'll put in at mid Canyon Fishing Access site and we'll take out a Pelican Port. It's about 12 miles of river," said tour guide Don Peterson. At the cost of 105 dollars to take the trip a group called Friendship Force took the challenge. Joseph Hunt from Austin, Texas is one such adventurer. "But I was brought up by the Friendship Force of Great Falls," says Hunt.

In a normal Friendship Force visit one group from one state would visit another group from another state, today is an exception to that norm. "This is a special one because we are from all different areas, usually a club from friendship force will go to another club so maybe 18 people from Great Falls will come to see us in Austin, Texas and then we'll show off our city, which by the way is the live music capitol of the world, and let them enjoy that and what it is, it is to promote friendship and understanding from people in different areas," explains Hunt. Hunt is spending his Friendship Force visit in Great Falls for one reason. "We're here to fully Lewis and Clark, well the reason I'm in Great Falls is really for the Lewis and Clark extravaganza that you have going on here," says Hunt. The group will board the bus and head towards Bozeman with a seasoned guide to help teach them all about the adventure of two well known explorers. "I've been to a number of different places but I've been doing this one since high school," says Peterson.
