WELCOME TO THE GREAT PLATTE RIVER

The Great River Platte  - Missouri Equator

July 21, 1804 -  After covering 14 miles in the rain the party reached the Great River Platte.  The highlands which they had seen on the south for the last 8 or 10 miles stopped abruptly.  Captains Lewis and Clark ascended the Platte for about one mile, reported the current very rapid and divided into a number of channels, none of which were deeper than 5 or 6 feet.  The Captains estimated the Platte River to be about 600 yards wide at its mouth and about that many miles from St. Louis.
