LEWIS AND CLARK LEFT FOR HOME IN 1806

See the source image

After passing a wet and tedious winter near the Pacific Coast,
Lewis and Clark left behind Fort Clatsop and headed east for
home.

The Corps of Discovery arrived at the Pacific the previous
November, having made a difficult crossing over the rugged
Rocky Mountains. Their winter stay on the south side of the
Columbia River—dubbed Fort Clatsop in honor of the local
Native American tribe—had been plagued by rainy weather
and a scarcity of fresh meat.

No one in the Corps of Discovery regretted leaving Fort
Clatsop behind
