Snake River and Columbia River Confluence

Finally, they saw the Columbia River.
The whole Corps was excited to finally get on the Columbia River because it was “all down hill from here”. Traveling downstream was so much faster than what they had been doing, it seemed almost effortless.
The State of Washington chose this significant location to honor Sacagawea by establishing Sacagawea State Park and establishing a modest museum in her honor.
