Historic Rock...

In 1805 Lewis and Clark were almost out of navigable water and desperately needed to connect with the Shoshone Indians to secure horses to finish the journey. Sacagawea was leading them to the general geographic area of the Shoshone when she saw Beaverhead Rock. She recognized the rock and knew where her people would be. The rest is history.

I'm not familiar with this history but you do get a impression of how this landscape might have looked so many years ago.

Hard to believe it was over 200 years ago.

Not a whole lot has changed in 200+ years. The vegetation is no longer all native and there are poles, wires and a highway. But except for that, this is what Lewis and Clark saw in 1805.

Hey..if it has a fence post, it's western art! And Sacagawea couldn't get lost, she just had to follow the lines. Seriously, though, when you look at 200+ years of evolution, not much has changed compared to a lot of places.
