Dino Trip 2003 - Sioux City to Prairie Village, Kansas

Barb drove Aunt Hallie home from the Sloan Drive-In and Dick and Thomas cut over to I-29 and started the last leg home.

Louis and Clark followed the Missouri River from what is now Kansas City to north of Sioux City. I-29 follows the Missouri here and commemorates the path with "Louis and Clark Trail" signs like the one here.
