After 2 years, 4 months, and 10 days, the Lewis and Clark expedition made it to St. Louis. They covered 7,689 miles. Today, it is remembered as one of the most influential explorations in American history. It is also a reminder of the perseverance that we all can have. The team did not give up, even after storms, frostbite, snow, starvation, or even gunshot wounds. This shows us how much we can accomplish if we put our minds to it.
