Marker Text:
“the road after leading us down a long descending valley for 2 Ms. Brought us to a large creek about ten yards wide; this we passed and on rising the hill beyond it had a view of a hansome little valley to our left of about a mile in width. . .” - Meriwether Lewis August 13, 1805 Lewis and Clark fans love to study the overland portion of the Trail in Montana and Idaho. There’s little question about the route on the Missouri and Columbia rivers, but the mountains present challenges to explorers then and now. The evidence in the journals and maps can be vague or contradictory. Doing what you’re doing - looking at the terrain - may either resolve questions or suggest new alternatives. The route across (or through?) the Pattee Creek canyon below you is still debated today. But that’s part of the magic of the Expedition: it’s interactive. Anyone can join the Corps of Re-Discovery.
