Echoes of a Bitter Crossing


The journey of Lewis and Clark through present-day Idaho was both difficult and memorable. The Corps of Discovery crossed Lemhi Pass on foot, August 12, 1805, and left Idaho via dugout canoe in October. In those two months the Expedition's hopes for an easy Northwest Passage were dashed and the Shoshonis and the Nez Perce saved the Expedition through the Bitterroot Mountains from defeat.
