We stayed in Lewis and Clark Trail Campground in Washington, a state campground which was, well...very old and worn out, at least by the standard set by most State Park campgrounds. I had pictures of the restrooms which looked pretty much like they did when built back in the 50's. I decided to not include them as who wants to look the men's urinals hanging on a paint peeled bulkhead of a leftover WW2 naval battleship? That's how they looked. So here is a scene from the nature trail the park had instead.
These are metal life-sized silhouettes of every individual who was part of the Corps of Discovery placed in the very spot they encamped on May 2, 1806. Now we thought this was way cool and very grateful that the campground host told us about it. Below is the bronze plaque with each individual listed and accounted for including what their rank and particular trade or skill was. Sacagawea is #24 and positioned next to the long metal piece at the far right.
Scruffy told us that the local funeral parlor owner pretty much was the sole individual behind this project.
Try as I might, I just couldn't really picture the encampment as if with smoke rising from campfires, people moving about, the horses grazing in the meadow. Oh how I wanted to just get it in my head this is it. This is where they were 205 years ago.
