In July, we took a trip to the Washington Olympic Peninsula. At the start of the trip, we went to Astoria, OR, and stayed at Fort Stevens State Park. We recommend all Oregon state parks as we have yet to be disappointed by them. They have all been great.
We visited Lewis and Clark National Historic Site, where the Lewis and Clark expedition stayed for the winter on their trip to explore the Louisiana Purchase. We learned a lot about Lewis and Clark and their journey. If you like historical places, you will like this park.
After visiting the park, we stopped at the Maritime Museun in Astoria. What a fascinating place! It focused on the opening of the Columbia River, and the difficulties of navigation there, and the many rescues and lives lost.
