Travelling with Lewis and Clark

Clark: Renewed our voyage. We set out with a small gentle breeze. Mr. Dorion left his kettle and had to sent back for it. We passed by the whitish to yellowish chalk along the sides of the river walls. The hills come close to the river; and are so near on both sides, as not to be more than two miles from each other. The sides of the river are about 170 feet high and the high lands approach the river from each side. It was cloudy all day and it began to rain. We saw a beaver house today but we could not find the opening. Drewyer killed an elk and a beaver after night and a number of catfish were caught.
