Late Summer, 1805, Crossing the Bitterroot Mountains:
Lewis was standing, listening to the roaring sound and looking at the fog rise above the Great Falls of Missouri. Saying it was the grandest sight he has ever beheld.
Sacagawea and Clark saw Indians on horseback riding towards them and Sacagawea noticed it was someone from Sacagawea's crew. She started dancing and was so happy because it turned out to be her brother! They spoke to them on their wants of horses to cross the mountains . The Shoshonies said it was unfavorable and there was no elk, deer, etc.
They went on their route and traveled on the worst roads a horse could travel on. Several horses fell and they barely had anything to eat. They were doing everything they could to stay strong and find food.
