We welcome you to sit a spell . . .
Three Forks is one of those rare and beautiful
localities in nature, that, when once seen remains
indelibly fixed in the memory. The Jefferson,
Madison and Gallatin here mingle their waters,
to form the Missouri River. These three tributaries
of the mighty Missouri meander gracefully through
an extensive valley, their banks fringed with
picturesque groups of cottonwood and willow
trees of various growths, with their sparkling
waters occasionally seen through the dense foliage."
