Lewis and Clark Book available.
"Lewis and Clark Trail, Tracks"
Lewis and Clark GPS Coordinates of the entire trail.
This DVD publication is the only publication that has ever completely documented the travels and GPS coordinates of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The DVD provides a 230 page detail description of the day-by-day travels of the Lewis and Clark. Each day of their travels is listed with the “Date”, “Events of the day”, “Longitude and Latitude”, “State”, “Who camped at the site”, and “Comments about the events of the day”.
From the list of over 1,000 GPS coordinates, click any campsite and select the view option and the items connect to Google Map or Bling to display a satellite, road map, or 3-Dimentional view of the actual site. The GPS coordinates are of the entire Lewis and Clark Trail but can be selected and downloaded by date, state or various other options. The GPS coordinates can be downloaded to almost all GPS units.
Anyone with the desire to follow the Lewis and Clark Trail will find this tool invaluable. If you simply want to see the Trail, the “View” option will allow you to sit at your desk and view the satellite images of the roads, trails, mountains, and rivers of the most significant adventure in America’s history.
US Map of the Lewis and Clark Trail:
Street and Roads of the trail:
View of a list of campsites:
Lemhi Pass: The 3D view of the GPS coordinates provides a scenic aerial view of this amazing dirt road that traverses the Pass into Idaho.
Lewis’s first contact with the Shoshoi tribe: This actual site has been debated for 200 years but the GPS coordinates provide strong evidence of where the actual site is located on Lemhi Pass Road.
Museums along the Trail: The GPS coordinates include not only campsites but other significant sites, museums, rock formations, etc along the Trail.
Clark’s Overlook Rock: The GPS coordinates take you to the exact foot steps of this towering rock formation. The only site where Lewis and Clark became lost from each other.
Lolo Summit: Without doubt the most challenging portion of the Lewis and Clark travels was the Lolo Trail across the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho.
Bear Oil and Root camp: History books discuss this campsite but finding it is a challenge. The Lolo Trail portion of the GPS coordinates take you off Forest Roads to the actual sites of their camps.
First Idaho campsite: After 32,000+ miles of traveling the trail the author found this site this past summer, definitely off the beaten path.
Piramid Rock Road: (Yep, misspelled Pyramid but the name remains) Many sites are simply geological formations mentioned in the Lewis and Clark Journals. Some of these sites would be very difficult to find without the GPS coordinates.
Fort Clatsop: Their final destination is an amazingly scenic site along the Columbia River to the Pacific.
Fort Clatsop: from GPS coordinates.
Clark’s gravesite in St Louis: - Many GPS coordinates simply compliment the history of one’s travels of the trail. If you are not
traveling the trail the GPS coordinates will still allow you to magnify the site and do an aerial view (with GoogleMap or Bling) of the gravesite or any campsite.
This new book, "The Lewis and Clark Trail, Tracks" combines modern day longitude and latitude GPS coordinates of the entire westward as well as the Return (eastward) travels. Each day is documented not only with the GPS coordinates but with the activities of the day, and the turn-by-turn driving directions that accompany the coordinates.
