Travelling with Lewis and Clark

Clark: Today we got an early start and passed the island and landed under the yellowish Clay Bluff. The wind was
very hard and it got cold and rainy. Fields and Howard killed four elk and we skinned the elk. As it cleared up it was cold and the high lands were uneven and leveled back. I noticed a few small streams traveling into the river above. I surveyed the ancient works on the walls and am told that these works are all along the country. About twelve the
wind blew so hard down the river that we could not proceed.
