    Greg, As I read your blog today, there is a good chance that you are watching the solar eclipse.

      Hi Don, we caught a glimpse of the eclipse, but we were in Canada by then where it didn’t show so much.

    Hi Greg, remember the Oregon Coast, Astoria well. We enjoyed visiting Fort Clatsop the beaches in the west are so different from the east coast beaches. Think about what the Lewis and Clarke and The Corp of Discovery must have experienced when they crossed the Rockies, their only frame of reference was the Blue Ridge Mountains in VA. The highest peake in VA is Mt. Rogers, 5,200 ft in southwest VA; 5,200 ft. is a foothill in the rockies! Without the help of the Native Americans they never would have made it. It was after they left what is now Washington State that they almost died because they didn’t believe the Native Americans when they were told that could not get over the mountains yet (believe that it was April or May) the didn’t listen and almost perished. They ended up turning back after and waiting. If you have time to do any reading pickup Ken Burns “Undaunted Courage” it’s a great read about L&C’s expedition. . If you go to Great Falls, Montana there is a good L&C Museum. Enjoy Vancouver it is one of our favorite places hope that we can go back lots to see and do, a high light for us while we were there was Grainville Island. There is an urban campground under the Lionsgate Bridge it is or at least was the most convenient campground around Vancouver. Safe travels!

      Great comment Ed! “Undaunted Courage” is one of my favorite books about an incredible trip. I have thought of it often while traveling this route. Martha and I will check out Grainville Island when we return to Vancouver. Safe travels yourself!

      Hi Ben. Good to hear from you. We didn’t really see the eclipse without proper glasses. If someone hadn’t told us it was going on, we never would have noticed. A bit far north, out of the belt where it was most visible.
