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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

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.
