Storyboard Description

June 29, 1805 - Nearly Swept Away in a Storm Clark determined to pass by the way of the river to camp in order to supply some notes and remarks which had made. He took with him York, Charbonneau, and his Indian woman (Sacagawea). At the falls he perceived a very black cloud rising in the west which threatened immediate rain. He looked about for shelter and discovered a deep ravine where there were some shelving rocks under which they took shelter near the river. A violent torrent of rain descended soon accompanied with hail with irresistible force, driving rocks, mud, and everything before it. Captain Clark fortunately discovered it a moment before it reached them. Seizing his gun and shot pouch with his left hand, with the right he assisted himself up the steep bluff, shoving his Indian woman before him who had her child in her arms. One moment longer and it would have swept them into the river just above the great cataract of 87 feet where they must have inevitably perished.
