Travelling with Lewis and Clark

Clark: A very cold morning at sun rise. This part of the creek is small and gradually widens with sand bars. There is no timber in this part of the country; but continued prairie on both sides of the river. A person by going on one of the hills may have a view as far as the eye can reach without obstruction and enjoy the most delightful prospects. We came to the edge of the plain and camped for the night. We saw signs of both Shannon and Colter. Here the grapes are many.
