Lewis and Clark at Seaside, Oregon

Seaside, Oregon, is the official end of the trail location for Lewis and Clark, the great American Explorers who began at Saint Louis in 1804, and 18 months later ended at the Pacific Ocean.

This is what it looks like at Seaside, Oregon today - a gorgeous HUGE white sandy beach. It is absolutely breath taking and peaceful.

There is a bronze statue of Lewis and Clark to commemorate this event and it has these fine young lads looking out towards the Pacific. Lewis was only 29 when he began this journey. He is the one on the left. Clark, who was four years older, is the one who recorded the journey. He is on the right, jotting down the notes. Obviously, the hotels in the background came MUCH later, but they also have a fantabulous view.
