Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument, Montana — Bob Wick, Instagram Guest Photographer
About the photo: This photo is an example of the use of use of framing to add a sense of intrigue to the image by blocking part of the view – Viewers will look at the person in the “Hole in the Rock” and wonder what that individual is seeing. To access the Hole in the Rock and other amazing photogenic rock formations, one must take a multi-day float trip down the Upper Missouri Wild and Scenic River. You will be following the same route (albeit going downstream) that Lewis and Clark came up on their voyage of discovery. The Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument hold a spectacular array of plant life, wildlife, unique geological features, endless recreational opportunities and significant historical and cultural values. The 149-mile Upper Missouri National Wild and Scenic River flows through the monument. The land and the rugged, surrounding uplands (commonly call the Missouri Breaks) are defined in part by their history. Learn about float trip and other opportunities at the Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center at 701 7th Street, Fort Benton, Montana.
