I've blogged Kaw Point before. It's one of my favorite spots. June 26th, 1804 Lewis and Clark landed near here (about a 1/4 mile up the Missouri) and stayed for a few days. It's now a park, well maintained and easy to get to. One can walk right to the rivers edges... the Kaw is on the right and the Missouri is on the left.
The above view looks Southeast toward the city. Below, looking north from the same spot.
I took the above photo for the grammar police. Tracy?
