Lewis and Clark
Transcript of Lewis and Clark
By Gabe Verlin
Crossing the Rocky Mountains
Next spring, during April in 1805, the Lewis and Clark expedition packed up all of their stuff and continued their expedition.
They started their journey at the Rocky Mountains.
This time they brought a interpreter and guide with them. Their interpreter and guide was a Shoshone woman named Sacajawea.
Sacajawea lived in the Rocky mountains so she helped the Lewis and Clark expedition a lot when they were traveling on the Rocky Mountains.
Their Journey Back Home
Sacajawea and 6 other Shoshones led the expedition through the rough Rocky Mountains and down to the valley Of the Columbia River.
The Lewis and clark expedition got to the Pacific Ocean in the late fall of 1805.
They spent the winter in Oregon Country.
The next spring they started to head back home to St. Louis.
They got back to St. Louis on September 23, 1806. Their journey was 2 years and 4 months, and they traveled about 8,000 miles.
