The Historic Trail In Nebraska Everyone Should Take At Least Once

Imagine your worst day at work. Maybe you accidentally spilled coffee all over your boss’s shirt, or forwarded a personal email to all of your clients, or got caught singing (poorly) in the break room. Pretty embarrassing, right? Well, at least no one will remember a century from now and erect statues and historical markers telling the story of that major flub.

The Shannon Trail isn’t meant to make fun of young Shannon or his sense of direction. His is simply an interesting story to tell – one of many that occurred on the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Taking the trail is a fun way to learn, through one young man’s eyes, about a side of the adventure that not many people have heard of.

Get more information about the journey – and about George Shannon – at the Shannon Trail site.
