Pollution Solutions

by Hillary Geronemus

Mark Twain was on to something. As a steamboat pilot, he saw the advantages of exploring America's waterways with just hot water, coal, and a paddlewheel. For a snapshot of that earlier time, board the Queen of the West, which trolls along the Snake, Willamette, and Columbia rivers in the Pacific Northwest. The boat retraces the trail of Lewis and Clark past coastal forests, volcanic peaks, and high deserts—onboard naturalists and historians help bring the journey to life. And unlike bigger ships, the Queen has but 72 Victorian-era cabins, most with verandas. Sometimes, slower is simply better.
