Geocache Description:

Celebrate the Bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition

The Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1803-1806 was a major event that shaped not only the boundaries but the very future of the United States. On February 28, 1803, Congress approved President Thomas Jefferson's visionary project, the Corps of Discovery. Over the next four years, the Corps of Discovery would travel thousands of miles, experiencing lands, rivers, and peoples that were unknown to all but Indians.

Lewis and Clark Virtual Caches The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail is approximately 3,700 miles long. It traces the route of Lewis & Clark, which began near St. Louis, IL and traveled as far as what is now modern day Astoria, OR. The trail passes through portions of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

Their goals: Map and explore the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase, make friends with natives, open the West to trade, and find the Northwest Passage (a water route to the Pacific Ocean).

Your goals:

0) Commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the journey and re-kindle its spirit of discovery
1) Attach a photo of a Lewis & Clark Interpretive Sign which includes your GPSr
2) Provide the Coordinates of the sign in your log
3) Give a little history lesson about the location from the sign These must be real 'Interpretive Signs' or as we called them growing up, Hysterical Markers - not just sign posts along the side of the road. Normal Locationless Rules Apply. One credit per cacher and each interpretive sign can only be claimed once.
