Using Google Earth to Follow the Trail of Lewis and Clark

May 14th marks the 215th anniversary of the start of the Lewis and Clark expedition.

The trip is an invaluable window into American history, but also a source of scientific and cultural knowledge. To commemorate the beginning of the years-long journey, we’re following in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark with a decidedly 21st-century tool: Google Earth.
