Missouri River Country

Missouri River Country might be the last chance in the Lower 48 to explore vast stretches of pristine landscape. Here, elk, deer and pronghorn antelope still graze the prairie, even outside the region’s many wildlife preserves. Rarely glimpsed birds flock here, sending birding geeks scrambling for their binoculars. Refugees from the urban world come here to escape blaring sirens and traffic jams, losing themselves to the seemingly endless great wide open.
