Hi Cindy, I wanted to tell you personally how much I enjoyed it. As of yesterday, I finally put my pictures into a scrapbook; and am having a super time reminiscing about all the wonderful adventures and side trips we went on. My head is wrapped around Lewis and Clark, and I am so glad I had read a couple of books on the subject before the trip.
I have just finished reading two books by Andrea Wulf: The Founding Gardeners and The Brother Gardeners. The subjects were in and around the same decade as Lewis and Clark and fit right into the history that I am presently finding so fascinating. I am not an historian, but anything associated with botany, collecting, and identifying is right up my alley. My grandchildren love the book I purchased on Lewis’ dog, Seaman (and so do I).
I hope to communicate with several other passengers with whom we got along well. Everyone was so friendly. Please consider a trip to Roanoke. Pheasant Ridge is not far from our home. Again thanks for being so patient with us and organizing our trip to perfection.
My Best, Carolyn
