Headwaters Of The Missouri River
It is located near Three Forks, Montana at an elevation of 4,045 feet (1,233 m).
The Missouri starts at the confluence of the Jefferson River and Madison River. It is joined about 0.6 mile down stream (northeast) by the Gallatin River.
Lewis and Clark visited the site on July 28, 1805. Meriwether Lewis in his journal entry wrote:
