Dismal Nitch?


What, exactly, is a dismal nitch, you might well be asking. It could a place where the Lewis and Clark party spent six miserable days and nights near the mouth of the Columbia River. A place that William Clark referred to as “that dismal little nitch.”*

OR, it could be the inspiration for a new adaptation of “Macbeth.”


*When the party left the dismal nitch, they moved to a spot that Clark referred to as “blustering point,” “Stormey point,” and “Point Distress.” Do we detect a theme here?
