Glad you enjoyed the RR! Their story is quite fascinating, to say the least. If you remember the very first picture of the Ride Report is the obelisk, tall concrete marker? After roughly 50,000 miles ago I went back to the obelisk last year to track down the site of Camp Disappointment, which is roughly 2.5 miles due north of the obelisk. I'd been within a few miles of Camp Disappointment but did not know the actual location. Finally last year I tracked down that last campsite so I figured I'd finally ridden the entire trail. Just a fascinating place (see picture below) due to the beauty of the campsite. What's really fascinating about this group of people was the Captains learned to calculate latitudes and longitudes with 3 primitive instruments, + the sun, stars and moon.....and wrote down these tracks of their travels...so people today can follow their Trail, often down to the foot prints. All can rest assured this campsites' coordinates are in my GPX files. Thanks for reading the RR. Ed Camp Disappointment: The little coral on the right is believed to be where Lewis, Drouillard, and the two Field brothers sat up camp and laid down to sleep, their cotton tents had rotted a year earlier. They were at this site for several days while Lewis waited for a clear sky to determine GPS coordinates. From their Journals, their only cover from rain and snow were buffalo and elk hides, but mostly finding a bluff or tree cover. The cliff to the right was believed to have been a buffalo jump for thousands of years.
