||Berlin grew up in Washington State climbing, kayaking , canoeing, hiking and exploring. He has been on Alaska adventures seven times, and loves paddling wherever there is water. At 76 yrs still loves all types of adventures. He is retired from North Dakota State University.
The Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804-1806 was a unique American adventure. To experience their route through the Missouri River Breaks of Montana, two fellows paddled the 149 miles from Fort Benton to James Kipp Recreation area over nine days, camping along the river bank in the footsteps of the expedition. The white cliffs area was very interesting and a good place to explore. The large cottonwood trees became their substitute for air conditioning, as afternoon temperatures were hot! A large big horn sheep drinking from the river as they paddled close by was a sight. The route was an interesting and beautiful part of the Montana landscape. For modern paddlers, literature is available to indicate where on the river Lewis and Clark camped and explored.
