Garnet, Montana

Earth Trek Through Montana

"Earth Trek" recreates the path of Lewis and Clark along the Missouri River, and digs up dinosaur fossils with famed paleontologist Jack Horner. A trek through Montana's wilderness is also part of the journey in search of yesterday's booming communities that are today's ghost towns.
