We were looking for Lewis and Clark.
And this is what we found: the Westport Pioneers.
Alexander Majors, the guy who came up with the idea of the Pony Express.
John Calvin McCoy, the guy who founded Kansas City.
And Jim Bridger, whose claim to fame is being a "mountainman".
There was a map at their feet which did not tell us much about where we were or where we wanted to go.
But maybe it only meant to tell us where we'd come from, historically, that is.
Our stop with the pioneers was brief. Just long enough to leave with some fun pictures and a good memory.
