Cape Disappointment, WA

Yesterday Mary and I visited Cape Disappointment on the southwest corner of the State of Washington. Lewis and Clark arrived here in November, 1805.

Lewis and Clark arrived at what is now Cape Disappointment in November, 1805. Photo taken from a sign at the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center.

We spent an enjoyable two hours in the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center which does a great jobs explaining their entire expedition. Then we toured the remains of Fort Canby which was in service from 1864 to 1947. Then along Wakaki Beach and the North Jetty completed our visit. The morning clouds gave way to bright sunshine and temperatures in the mid 60’s. I’ve been here several times over the last 20 years and days like this one are rare. Needless to say, we were not disappointed with the weather or the great time we enjoyed. Like I’ve been telling folks for a long time…”It’s a lousy job, but somebody’s got to do it!”.
