Is that why it's called Cape Disappointment? Curious how it would get that name..

Google says it got it's name when 'on July 6, 1788 English fur trader John Meares (1756-1809) names the northern side of the entrance to the Columbia River, Cape Disappointment. The name reflects Meares' chagrin at not finding the Columbia River.'

Interesting...

One small crack doesn't mean you are broken; it means that you were put to the test and didn't fall apart..

There used to be a lot of fog in this area. In my lifetime I have seen the weather change. A lot.

At one time I think the airport in Mckinleyville was on of the foggiest. ( It used to be called the Eureka, Arcata airport, or something like that. It lives in Mckinleyville though.) Humboldt County. Now I think it’s called something to do with the redwoods. 

You can see how up I am on details! 

I want to age without sharp corners, and have an obedient heart!

That airport was constructed by the Navy to test fog dispersant techniques. McKinleyville had two assets for these experments, first it was the foggiest location they could find that was sutible for an airport, the second was the avaiability of natural gas for which Humbolt County was well known. They erected huge gas burners down both sides of the glidepath and the main runway, the name given for this process was FIDO, Fog Investigation And Dispersal system a British inventention. McKinlyville was  the only test installtion in the US. It was very impresive at night when th burners were on. It worked but was far to expensive for civlian use.

Jerry, I have two people in my life that are my historians. And I love it. You, and dear Joan VanCleave. You both are full of things I have forgotten, or didn’t know, and wish I did! 

Good minds a wonderful gift! My memory is like Swiss cheese. All sorts of holes! 

I’m hoping the wonderful things I’ve forgotten will be restored in due time! 

Thanks.

Boy did I get that wrong; Fog Investgation Dispersal Operation. I was about five when they built the runways on a tableland just above my folks Mad River summer cabin.

I need coffee.

I thought it said “Froggiest place”. I was picturing them in the ovens and the kneading troughs.

The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man. Ec 12:13

We have Cape Disappointment then up the road a piece we have Dismal Nitch

 

What the Corps didn’t realize, however, was that it was about to run into some of the journey’s most treacherous moments. A fierce winter storm forced the Corps off the river Nov. 10 and pinned the group to a north shore cove consisting of little more than jagged rocks and steep hillside. Captain William Clark named the dreary spot “that dismal little nitch.”.........
