Thursday June 27, 2002: The Dalles, OR - Astoria, OR

We were an eager 44
When we set out on "The Trail."
With Captain Tom and Captain Don
All knew we could not fail

We stood beneath "the Arch" awhile,
And then we headed West
To council sites, museums, forts
It's hard to choose the best

From Tom and Don and local guides
We certainly learned a lot,
In shops we found great gifts and books
That all, of course, we bought.

Phil safely drove us many miles
Just as our trip was planned.
Now each of us feels greater pride
For this our own dear land.
Jane Bradley

Multnomah Falls

 

Today's journey took us down the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.
Ruth Boydston of Renton, WA gave us a stirring rendition of "Roll on Columbia"
 as we  passed the capes, rocks and falls mentioned in the Lewis and Clark Journals.


Phoca Rock - Cape Horn


Beacon Rock - Rooster Rock ok

While walking in Clark's footsteps toward Cape Disappointment, Sally Knutson shouted "SEAMAN", and we all turned to see this strange piece of driftwood. Ann Goldhahn take notice.
