Worden in Yellowstone County, Montana — The American West (Mountains)
The "Yellowstone River" Walkway
Clark on the Yellowstone River
— July 15-August 3, 1806 —
The large sidewalk also represents the Yellowstone River, but at a much larger scale. As the Yellowstone flows from Yellowstone National Park to its confluence with the Missouri, it changes from a mountain river to a plains river.
The mountain river is swift and contains rapids. The plains river is slower, meanders more, and has many islands. Such a river is often called a braided river
