Great joy in camp we are in view of the ocean, this great Pacific Ocean which we been so long anxious to see.

December 1, 1805
The immense seas and waves which break on the rocks and coasts... roars like an immense fall at a distance, and this roaring has continued ever since our arrival in the neighborhood of the sea coast, which has been 24 days since we arrived in sight of the Great Western --for I cannot say Pacific -- ocean, as I have not seen one pacific day since my arrival in its vicinity.
--William Clark
