These are a few of the recently completed print frames. The red oak frames are mitered and dyed with GF water based blue dye. The finish is three coats of gloss Arm R Seal. The small prints are WPA style "See America" posters. The Dismal Nitch print was a point on the Lewis and Clark expedition where they became stranded on the Columbia River due to a Winter storm. It was their last campsite before sighting the Pacific Ocean. Cape Disappointment is a point on the southwest coast of Washington state. It is one of the foggiest locations in the US, averaging 106 days of fog per year. #woodworking#woodworker#woodwork#printframe#handcrafted#handmade#interiordesign#homedecor#lewisandclark#dismalnitch#capedisappointment
In our prequel to #LewisandClark , I've had just enough time to setup the solo game variant, read through the rules (with the help of some YouTube playthroughs) and play several turns. Like this meeple, I'm definitely a Newcomer to the midweight to heavy euros. This is one of the first games I purchased without knowing complexity level interest of our friends. So group play and summary review to come!
Moccasins, Jiwere (Otoe), Oklahoma, ca. 1885.
The #Otoe and #Missouria were the first tribes to hold council with #LewisandClark representing President Thomas Jefferson in the summer of 1804. Lewis and Clark presented documents with the tribes offering peace and established sovereignty for the United States over the tribes. The Otoe and Missouria traditionally occupied lands in the lower Missouri River Valley but now are located in Oklahoma. #ChandlerPohrtCollection#moccasinmonday
On Oct. 16, 1805, the Corps of Discovery arrived at the confluence of the Snake and Columbia rivers, the site of today's Sacajawea Historical State Park. “Having gone 21 miles we arrived at the great Columbia river, which comes in from the northwest. We found here a number of natives, of whose nations we have not yet found out the names. We encamped on the point between the two rivers. The country all round is level, rich and beautiful, but without timber.” - Sergeant Gass October 16, 1805

On September 14, 1804, a day that was no doubt similar to today, the Corps of Discovery decided to make camp here on the other side of the Missouri River. I like to imagine what those men saw and felt as they journeyed across the vast Louisiana Purchase to the Pacific. Their epic adventure is intimately intertwined with the history of the American West that I love so much. #history#lewisandclark#hifromsd#iphone
