St. Louis, MO – Saturday marked the 200 year anniversary of when explorers Lewis and Clark returned to St. Louis after a 3-year, 8,000-mile journey.

In the spirit of keeping history alive, several descendants of Lewis and Clark set out to recreate the trip completely.

Weekend America sent Collin Campbell to the Missouri River to see how it went.
