A Look Down The Lower Lewis River Falls

Lower Lewis River Falls Washington

Yes, the lake may be found in Washington, an alleged entrance to the much-mythicized northwest passage whose specious existence sent two explorers on their “merry” way across the country in the early 19th century. But if you think these falls are named after one of these adventurers, Meriwether Lewis, you’d be sadly mistaken. Rather, the Lewis River received its name from Lee Lewis, a mere homesteader.
