Astoria, Fort Clatsop

Apr 13, 2018 - National Geographic Quest


We awoke this morning in Astoria to wind and rain; however, the intrepid explorers aboard National Geographic Quest soldiered on, continuing in the spirit of the Corps of Discovery and their wet winter of 1805-1806 at Fort Clatsop.  The weather served to bring the experience to life!  We learned about the storied maritime history of the region at the Columbia River Maritime Museum and after lunch, we explored the very beach where Lewis and Clark dipped their feet into the waters of the Pacific Ocean 212 years ago.  It was a wonderful beginning to our voyage together.
