      Walking Adventures International: Walking in the Footsteps of Lewis &
      Clark provides an unforgettable opportunity to relive this historic
      saga. Since the bicentennial celebration of this epic journey runs from

      interpretive centers along the route that bring the amazing
      accomplishments of the Lewis & Clark Expedition to life. NOTE: Our 2005
      edition of Walking in the Footsteps of Lewis & Clark will be the last in
      this series. We do not anticipate offering this tour again in 2006. 16
      AVA walks included in IL, MO, KS, NE, IA, SD, ND, MT, ID, WA, and OR.
