Good Fences - The Lewis and Clark Edition

I'm excited to finally be back participating in Theresa's  (The Run-a-Round Ranch Report)  GOOD FENCES meme.


On Sunday (17) we decided to take a little drive about 45 out of town to visit a little spot we'd heard about but had never seen before.  This is what we found.

My mom and Coleen enjoying learning about this part of history.


These two horses set up on a hill outside of the main sculpture area.

Mike reading one of the 3 informational signs/plaques that tell about the sight.

A closer view of the sign he was reading with the figures in the background.


A close-up of some of the figures.  I just missed getting William Clark in this shot so in the next photo I've cropped another photo to include his figure.

William Clark is the figure directly behind the two horses in the front center of the photo and Lewis Meriwether is the figure in the middle next to the dog in the front of the photo.

 Here is another close-up in which I included Meriwether.  The woman behind next to the fire area is Sacagawea or as I learned her name,  Sacajawea,  the Indian woman who served as an Interpreter for the expedition.

This last shot was taken by my hubby.  Since I'm so rarely in front of the camera I asked him to take my picture so I could prove that I was there as well.


As you can see a Fence did border the area so it fits today's Meme even though it's more about the site then the fence.  -  Have a great day.

  2. How interesting this is. I'm glad you remembered to be included in a photo. I forget that quite often. It would have been fun to do the Lewis and Clark trail with my kids when they were younger. Maybe I'll do it someday with grands...

  3. Neato! I've been there. Always fun to see a spot on someone's blog of a place I've been to. Yes, I stood there for the longest time trying to visualize the scene in real life. I wasn't too successful but the representation there helped a lot. Great post and thank you for the memory.

  37. This is so neat! Don't you love finding hidden treasures like this so close to home?!

  38. So cool! You have the neatest places to visit there. I know what you mean about including yourself in a photo now and then, too. I've had to do that lately so it won't look like I just dropped out of our lives after a point. Someday we'll have to tour your area. I've been to Walla Walla, but never really explored the surrounding area. Been many places in Washington, actually. Heck, I was born in Seattle and also lived in Sequim. As a teenager I lived in Pendleton for a while, which is when I used to visit Walla Walla. Pretty close.
