Today is our get-acquainted day. We meet our fellow travelers and are
greeted by our escort and driver as we begin our journey through the
Bluegrass State of Kentucky. After lunch we will be crossing the Ohio
River into Cincinnati, the Queen City of the West, as we continue through
Indianapolis to our fnal destination for the night in Champaign, Illinois.
Today we leave the beauty of the Canadian Rockies traveling into
the Province of British Columbia, Canada’s westernmost province,
located between the Pacifc Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. Our
destination for the night is Kamloops, British Columbia where the
North and South Thompson rivers meet.
Another scenic highlight awaits us today! We follow the route of the Lewis
& Clark Expedition along the Clearwater River. View unparalled scenery
as the highway meanders through the Nez Perce National Historical Park.
We travel through river canyons, upland valleys and forested mountains,
We enter Montana at Missoula as we welcome Interstate 90 and continue
to Butte, Montana for the night. Butte, as the first major city in Montana
and, at one time, the largest city west of the Mississippi River between
Chicago and San Francisco, can accurately lay claim to the title of “Montana’s
most historic city”. Butte’s history is as colorful and diverse as the
landscape of Montana.
