There are several CCC structures scattered thru the PNW. Their impressive works are standing the tests of time very well. This is one of my favorites. Enjoyed watching some Orca's swim north while relaxing here.

"The Civilian Conservation Corps established a camp at Cape Perpetua in 1933. The West Shelter was used as an observation post during World War II and a coastal defense gun was installed here. The shelter is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

The CCC-constructed West Shelter sits atop the 45 million-year-old oceanic shield volcano of Cape Perpetua. On a clear day, the shelter offers a 70-mile view up and down the central Oregon coast and the horizon sits 40 miles out on the Pacific Ocean. With binoculars, you can experience gray whale migrations in season and the meadows at the top of the Cape offer a dazzling variety of wildflowers in spring and early summer."

Enjoy a wonderful Sunday.

Looking north from the lower terrace at old Fort Yellowstone (red roofs) and the more modern concessions district.

"Fort Yellowstone was a U.S. Army fort, established in 1891 at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone was designated in 1872 but the Interior Department was unable to effectively manage the park. Administration was transferred to the War Department in August 1886 and General Philip Sheridan sent a company of cavalry to Mammoth Hot Springs to build a cavalry post. The army originally called the post Camp Sheridan in honor of General Sheridan but the name was changed to Fort Yellowstone in 1891 when construction of the permanent fort commenced. The army administered the park until 1918 when it was transferred to the newly created National Park Service. The facilities of Fort Yellowstone now comprise the Yellowstone National Park headquarters, the Horace Albright Visitor Center and staff accommodations." Wiki

Much to fascinate and entertain anyone here, from the amazing geothermal features to the history of the area.

Enjoy a terrific Tuesday!

SACAJAWEA MONUMENT
The bronze monument of “Sacajawea and Pomp” was created by Idaho sculptor Agnes Vincen Talbot. It is a fitting tribute to Sacajawea with the backdrop of the Beaverhead Range and the Lemhi River Valley, and landscaped with natural local rocks and flower gardens.

The Lewis and Clark expedition wouldn't have been as successful without the help, guidance, communications skills and native resources without this impressive woman.

Thanks for taking a look! Always appreciated!

Have a wonderful weekend!

A salute on Memorial Day
In honor of those who sacrificed and gave All for our freedoms.

"The Alaska Veterans Memorial is an outdoor memorial grove in Denali State Park in Interior Alaska. The memorial honors Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Alaska National Guard, and Merchant Marine veterans from Alaska, as well as specific Alaskans who were awarded the Medal of Honor. There are also small memorials to the passengers and crew of military plane crashes in Alaska. The site was selected because of the scenic beauty of the area and its location between Alaska's two largest cities. On a clear day visitors can see Denali from just outside the memorial." Wikipedia

A statue of Sacajawea at the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Educational Center in Salmon Idaho.

The Center is dedicated to honoring and providing education about America’s great historical heroine, Sacajawea, an Agai Dika Lemhi Shoshone, and her role in the Corps of Discovery. Cradled in the Lemhi River Valley between the Salmon River and the Beaverhead Mountains, the Center lies in the heart of Sacajawea's homeland.

I've long been fascinated with the journey of the Lewis and Clark expedition. This Center was by far one of the most impressive sites dedicated to this historic trip that I've visited.

I sincerely appreciate your visits, comments and suggestions.
