here's the group at Howard Creek, an area
where we walk a portion of the Lewis and Clark trail, which follows the
ancient Nez Perce Trail.
Earlier we visited Traveler's
Rest, the campsite of Sept. 9 & 10, 1805 and June 30-July 2, 1806.
Travelers' Rest State Park marks
the location of a centuries-old Native American campsite which Lewis and
Clark's used in 1805 and 1806. They called the nearby creek "Travellers
Rest." In Summer 2002, archeologists found evidence of the Corps of
Discovery's latrine and central fire, positioning the Park as one of the
the few sites in the nation with physical confirmation of the group's
visit--a truly unique designation. ok
Our local guide, Gabrielle, left us at Lolo Pass,
near Packer Meadows.
