Imagine the wonder that Sacajawea had when she saw a sand dollar for the first time. The artist who created the bronze statue of her that stands atop the hill at the Sacajawea Cemetery tried to capture that amazement.

  3. This really is a lovely statue with a lovely setting. There are so many interesting places in the US to visit and I wish I had more opportunities to do so. Thank you for taking us on a mini-trip today.

  9. Thanks for sharing this! It's beautiful. Have you read Sacajawea by Ann Waldo? It's about her and the Lewis and Clark Expedition. I really enjoyed it.

  10. This might be my new favorite post of yours - and that's saying something! I love sand dollars and starfish, but what a strong, amazing woman she was... for so very long!
