Lewis and Clark National Historic Site

Nice Winter Home

If you are into history, this place is fun.

As a midwestern child, we were all taught of Lewis and Clark and their expedition to map the west.  Its romanticized in its teachings and lent to many daydreams on my part about what it would be like to be an adventurer.

This national site has a recreation of the original overwinter location that the Lewis and Clark expedition set up when they reached the west coast.  I didn’t know what to expect of the place going into it, but I enjoyed a morning of walking through structures and just pretending.  The afternoon was spent hiking a random trail for the sake of getting my legs to do something.  If you are in the Astoria area, I recommend a stop in.
