Lewis & Clark are alive and well

and they’ll be at Dismal Nitch this weekend:
(excerpt from Destination the Pacific website):
DISMAL NITCH
Saturday and Sunday, May 24 & 25
Special Living History programs at Dismal Nitch, one of the newest units of the Lewis and Clark State and National Historical Parks.

Dismal Nitch was possibly one of the worst times during the expedition. Pinned in a tiny “nitch” for six days along the Columbia River and near their destination in November of 1805, the Corps of Discovery could only wait until the fierce winds and rain let up until they could continue to the Pacific Ocean.
Another monumental milestone for Fort Clatsop will be celebrated the following weekend: The 50th Anniversary of its status as a National Historic Park.

If you’re at the coast this weekend or the next, you can always drop in to Sunday Market to pick up a souvenir map (these make great gifts for Dad, too!) from NW Limited…History in VogueTM.
