Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center - Cape Disappointment State Park, Washington

The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center at Cape Disappointment State Park is located overlooking the Pacific Ocean near the mouth of the Columbia River in southwest Washington State.  It was near here that Lewis & Clark completed their cross-continental exploration of the United States in 1806.  This visitor center tells the story of that journey and the history of the Cape Disappointment area in beautiful interpretive displays on two levels.  The main gallery features a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, from the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse to the North Jetty.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
