  • I can imagine the elation when the crew on the salt works gathered their product and returned to camp with a bushel or more of salt. It certain the rest of the company was thrilled.

  • Wonderful historical marker that is part of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Park. Visited here in the autumn. If you're interested in learning about the Lewis and Clark expedition this place is definitely worth a stop, it preserves the site were the Lewis and Clark expedition set up camp to make salt after their long journey to the Pacific Ocean. It explains the reason they came down this far as well (they had to get far enough away from the area where the fresh water or the Columbia mixes into the Pacific). The signs are old but they are still readable, and the whole area is viewable from beyond since that surrounds the whole thing. Overall a nice little stop with a good historical lesson.
  • Really enjoyed this history lesson. Very interesting and important for our coastal history.
