Although they did not travel through Wyoming, their expedition resulted in one of the first maps to name some Wyoming places including Heart Mountain and the Stinking Water River (Shoshone). Here is a portion of "Lewis and Clarks track across the Western Portion of North America" by Allen, Biddle, Lewis and Clark. Courtesy of the David Rumsey Historical Map Collection.
