Where Lewis and Clark Stopped in Montana.Written by Rooster
In addition to main objective of finding and mapping a new route to Pacific Ocean, President Thomas Jefferson had 3 other tasks for explorers Lewis and Clark to complete. The first was to make contact with Native Americans. Secondly explorers were to obtain specimens of flora and fauna for further study. Lastly Lewis and Clark were charged with keeping full and detailed records of their activities during their expedition in search of a new route to Pacific Ocean. Their trek through wild, unsettled Montana provided some of most challenging and interesting experiences in their long, arduous adventure. Near Billings Montana From July 13th to July 26th, 1806, near Billings Montana, Captain William Clark’s exploration team watched as smoke billowed into deep blue Montana sky from neighboring Crow nation. While floating down Yellowstone River, Clark went ashore and carved his name on a giant sandstone pillar he named “Pompy’s Tower in honor of Sacagawea’s young baby. Nearby at Buffalo Mirage Access they constructed two canoes to continue their trip down Yellowstone River. From there they traveled onward via a 149 mile segment from what is now Kipp State Park, upstream to Fort Benton. For those wanting an exciting vacation in beautiful Montana, this route has changed little since Lewis and Clark explored it in 1805 and 1806. Commercial boat trips are available for interested vacationers. In June 1805, explorers made camp for nine days along Marias River and determined that Marias is not main tributary of Missouri river. Vacationers will find an interpretive sign, nearby in Loma, Montana. Visitors to historic town of Fort Benton will find an impressive statue of Lewis, Clark, Sacagawea and her son.
