HISTORY & PREHISTORY

11. Helena

Helena: The expedition members anticipated their arrival at the headwater of the Missouri and were happy that Sacagawea recognized the land in which they’d arrived. Lewis' dog Seaman chased geese during their passage through the Upper Missouri valleys. Lewis wrote in his journal about all the fresh game and berries that filled the area. It was their first experience of lush beauty and greenery away from the grassy plains and rocky passages. They sighted otter, beaver and even a wild horse.
