Fort Clatsop

  • Vernon Preston


“Wet and disagreeable“ was the motto of the Corps of Discovery during the winter of 1805/06 at Fort Clatsop, near present-day Astoria, Oregon. Using dead reckoning, Clark estimated the mileage of their winding journey from St. Louis to the mouth of the Columbia River at 4,162 miles. He was within 40 miles of the actual distance (Duncan and Burns 1997, 159; Ambrose 1998, 175).
