13. Beaverhead Rock

Beaverhead Rock: By August 8, 1805, Lewis and Clark had become concerned about their difficulty in contacting the Shoshone. Over 2,000 miles from home, with an unknown distance ahead of them, they needed to find horses. Sacagawea had confirmed that they had entered lands familiar to the Lemhi Shoshone, but they hadnít run into any of the Shoshone. They had traveled almost the length of Montana without seeing another human being.
