Could you imagine what it was like to be an explorer?

[c=800000]What courage it must have taken to accompany Lewis and Clark westward.
Or, Daniel Boone into North Carolina. [/c]

Yes it did take courage. Things can go haywire quickly in isolated areas….severe storms, blizzards, hostile territory, floods, wild animals, horse runs aways etc. Not to mention roving criminals (highway robbery).

@cherokeepatti The first encounter between white explorers and a Grizzly Bear. 🐻

@ProfessorPlum77 I watched a video of a grizzly bear chasing a herd of wild horses. I didn’t know they could keep up with horses.

@cherokeepatti They are pretty fast. I know they can outrun an elk.

Yes, I channel that indomitable spirit every time I search the basement or garage for some elusive article.
Deep In its canyons of towering boxes, threatening collapse, with a failing light; it's as if Lewis & Clark are right at my side.

@SethGreene531 Imaginative answer!
@ProfessorPlum77 (LOL, TY)

🤭 Sometimes we're gone for days 😆

How about the explorers that jumped on a ship and traveled the world hundreds of years ago?

That seems like it would be the most dangerous.

@DogMan [c=002673]You make an excellent point. [/c]
