Our day started cloaked in a hydrating fog. The clinging mists brought a jewel like quality to everything it touched, from sparkling spider webs to glistening fuzzy caterpillars. This is as far west as we will travel on our Columbia River journey while we trace the historical pathway of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. This evening we head west, as the Corps did in the spring of 1806. They were anxious for a return home, we are anxious for a river adventure, and it started yesterday in Portland, Oregon.
