QUOTE OF THE DAY
We are all wet and disagreeable, as we have been for several days past, and our present situation a very disagreeable one inasmuch as we have not level land sufficient for an encampment, and for our baggage to lie clear of the tide. The high hills jutting in so close and steep that we cannot retreat back, and the water of the river too salty to be used. Added to this, the waves are increasing to such a height that we cannot move from this place. In this situation, we are compelled to form our camp between the height of the ebb and flood tides, and raise our baggage on logs.

Partner Highlight - NOAA's National Geodetic Survey (NGS)
To honor Lewis and Clark's contributions to mapping, NOAA's National Geodetic Survey (NGS) is installing a series of commemorative markers along the route that Lewis and Clark traveled. The marks begin at Thomas Jefferson's home in Monticello Virginia, continue westward to Lewis and Clark's winter home on the Pacific Ocean, Fort Clatsop in Oregon, and then loop back eastward ending under the Arch of St. Louis. NGS is positioning these markers using the satellite-based Global Positioning System. These markers will be incorporated into the National Spatial Reference System NSRS, the federal standard and foundation for all positioning and navigation activities in the United States.
