[VO-NAT 11Server: Lewis & Clark Train]
[SUPER=03-Portland, OR;]

Two men dressed up as the expedition leaders were among those boarding the first run of an Amtrak train that makes its way along the Oregon side of the Columbia River. Almost two centuries ago, Lewis and Clark completed their historic trip by heading down the Columbia to the Pacific Ocean. This "explorer train" is designed to let riders view some of same sights the two Virginia men saw in the early 18-hundreds.
