So, when you all come to North Georgia, you need to bring a rock.

I don't think it is a repost SC, and how about that. That is something I've never seen!

I suspect that a great number of people have seen it and never stopped. It is at a crazy dangerous intersection.

That poor gal will never get any rest. It's nice that the preserved the grave, but did they really have to make an intersection out of it? Cool story though.

Way cool! Next time I am in Georgia, I'll bring a Texas rock to place there!

First Explorers of North America

The British and Russians were exploring the Pacfic first but Lewis and Clark's gang followed shortly behind.




L & C called their western most point Cape Disappointment, because the British and Russians could not find the mouth of the Columbia River (south of Seattle) they called it Cape Disappointment. Lewis and the boys found the mouth of the Columbia River. The view today:





View from Lewis and Clark Cape Disappointment Interpretive Museum:


What was facinating is Wm Clark drew several sketches of these cone shaped hats all the local Chinook Indian people wear wearing.



L & C were impressed and facinated with the cone shaped hats that kept the Chinook Indians dry in the almost continual rain. Impressed enough they paid the Chinook women to make a pair of the cone shaped hats for them. These cone shaped hats were believed to have only been found in the Asian civilization, indicating that China had visited the Pacific Northwest prior to L & C.

L & C camped on the shores of the Pacific (their Fort Clatsop) for 6 months waiting for winter weather to subside before their return back over the snow covered mountains to St Louis.

The day before their departure from Fort Clatsop Lewis wrote a brief letter and included a list of all the OFFICIAL members of the Expedition, signed and dated it in case they were killed or for whatever reason never made it home. Hoping that their presence on the Pacific would be considered their claim to the territory.

Lewis then made 3 copies of his letter. He kept one, gave one to the local Clatsop Indian chief, and posted the third copy on the gate of Fort Clatsop as they left on March 28th, 1806, hoping some foreign trade ship would eventually find Ft Clatsop and his letter.

One hundred and ten yrs later a copy of Lewis' letter was found in China (For Sale). Again, providing strong indication that the Chinese were exploring the Pacific Northwest at the same time L & C were there..




Replica of Fort Clatsop - Astoria, Oregon





The copy Lewis retained and brought home is in either the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Museum or at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. ...
