David Thompson Historic Route
David Thompson , Perhaps The Greatest Canadian Explorer
Explorer David Thompson traversed and mapped more of North America than any other trader or mapmaker. Between 1784 and 1850, Thompson explored about 1.5 million square miles of the continent. His achievements included surveying many of the townships of Ontario and Quebec; determining large sections of the boundary between Canada and the United States; establishing the Columbia basin fur trade; exploring and mapping of a vast area of western North America; and documenting the nature, history, and cultures of much of the continent. Thompson also traveled through Montana , Washington , and Idaho – and was the first to explore and map out the entire Columbia River system. Learn more by following the route through Alberta, Kootenai River Country, and British Columbia.
