From Bette Worley: We saw many sights today. we saw Multnomah Falls flowing over a very high cliff of about 585 feet. We stopped at various sights where Lewis and Calrk had been. Our evening dinner at the Red Lion in Astoria, OR overlooked the marina and the Pacific Ocean. We had delicious salmon for the third day. Our instructor, Tom Laidlaw, an actor as well as an expert on the Lewis & Clark history, impersonated William Cannon for our evening presentation. we have been very privileged to have Tom & Don Popejoy for our instructor and coordinator. ok
