Travelling with Lewis and Clark

Lewis: Again it is fog that I awaken to in the morning. We loaded the canoes and waited until the fog disappeared. We had trouble passing some riffles today and had to use horse and oxen to rescue us. At six in the evening we were pounded by rain. We camped at the head of Brown's Island when the night blackened around us. I was very worried because much of our valuable belongings had not been brought up yet so I blew the trumpet and ordered our things to be secured. We traveled 16 miles today.
