I am 56 years old and mother to 3 children. I have always been fascinated about the northwestern part of the United States. I love to read novels about the west. Especially about the Lewis and Clark expedition. Sometimes, I feel like I was born in the wrong time period. I love to travel to historical places on my vacations. I hope someday to have a pen pal that is as fascinated about the Lewis and Clark expedition as I am. Or just anyone who loves the western part of the U.S. as much as I do. I also love to go hiking in the mountains. I was fortunate to travel most of the Lewis and Clark trail .
