You no doubt had this image of the Lewis & Clark sculpture seared into your memory…
The reason I bring up is that I went back to Kaw Point over the July 4th weekend, just to check things out. Most of the trails were blocked off for a pretty good reason, that being that they are now under water.
Here's a pick from Monday by way of illustration. This is as close as I could get without getting wet.
So you can see that if you did venture out to stand beside the sculpture, you'd be about neck deep in icky, dirty brown Missouri River mud. Also the mosquitoes are pretty bad down there, so if you go be sure to take a harpoon to defend yourself.
