Adventure Activities to do at Lewis and Clark Trail State Park

Lewis and Clark Trail State ParkAfter the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, President Thomas Jefferson sent Meriwether Lewis and William Clark out with a group to discover the west. Beginning at the Illinois/Missouri border and ending at the mouth of the Columbia River in Northwest Oregon, Lewis and Clark led the Corps of Discovery on a two-year expedition from 1804-1806. The path they blazed is now protected and governed by the National Park Service. When you follow the trail, which is not entirely suitable for hiking these days, you will come across the town of Dayton, Washington. There you will find a 37-acre park named after the brave expeditionists. At the Lewis and Clark Trail State Park, you can channel your inner explorer and find adventure in a myriad of ways, just like the famous duo did centuries ago.

Vacation of a Lifetime: Bill & Pam O’Brien

Vacation of a LifetimeThe following blog was written by Bill & Pam O’Brien.

Our vacation of a lifetime began at the Lafayette Inn in Easton, PA. We did not have to travel too far from home to visit this bed and breakfast – about 11 miles! We were greeted at the front desk by Val who checked us in. From there we went to our beautiful two-room suite. The main room had a queen size bed and a fireplace. Off of this room was a sitting room with a trundle bed. The balcony could be accessed from this room, but we didn’t get to utilize it due to the extremely cold weather.
