Fort Washakie Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 13 photos
Fort Washakie was not on our original road trip itinerary, but just another little burg along our route from Lander, Wyoming, to the Tetons. When we discovered that famed Indian guide Sacajawea and her son Baptiste Charbonneau are buried in the cemetery there, we decided it a good time and place to change our plans. Sacajawea was, of course, the Shoshone woman who guided the Lewis and Clark expedition on its discovery of the northwest passage to the Pacific. We found the cemetery to be fascinating and quite colorful, with a beautiful view of a snow-capped mountain range.
Fort Washakie, the only fort named after an Indian, was abandoned in 1909. The small town is located within the Wind River Indian Reservation.
