From the Gateway to Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana to the confluence of the Missouri River at historic Fort Buford, North Dakota, two boats drifted north on the freestone waters of the Yellowstone River. For 30-days, the crew is surrounded by the peaceful sounds of a massive water flow, flanked on each side by rugged mountains, plains full of big game, and an unending sky showcasing bald eagles and osprey. Stops in both booming cities and dusty, dwindling towns along the Yellowstone River, illustrate the history and controversies surrounding this enigmatic watershed leading to questions about its future.

With Montana’s captivating scenery at the forefront, Where the Yellowstone Goes takes a closer look at the impact people have on each other and on our environment.
