Jean Baptiste

Upon reaching the Lolo Pass and remembered  that I have traveled the Columbia River several times and visited Fort Clatsop a couple of times. I decided to turn south and visit with friends and family. Adelle told me that I should watch for Jean Baptiste's grave.
Sacajawea was crucial to the Corps of Discovery successful journey. She traveled from Fort Mandan to the Pacific, all the while carrying her infant son Jean Baptiste. He traveled the world and explored the west until is death in 1866 here on the Oregon Trail.  grave  42.951968, -117.339194
