Fun Times at Dismal Nitch

The Park Service will grow by another 154 acres soon. The newly formed Lewis and Clark National Historical Park is adding land associated with the Voyage of Discovery 200 years ago. A conservation fund purchased the land and will transfer it to the Park Service next year. The area is known as Dismal Nitch. Here is what Captain William Clark had to say about his stay there, 200 years ago:
