This concluding chapter presents the perspective of a documentary filmmaker who traveled the entire length of the Lewis and Clark trail. It looks at the inspiration he derived from the unofficial motto of the expedition—“We proceeded on.”—and observes that the phrase is frequently used in the Journals. The chapter also provides an imaginary tour of the trail, where the author is accompanied by Lewis and Clark. Several reflections on the contemporary state of the trail are given.
