Journal Entry 1804 Sep 21: "A man, whom we had despatched to step off the distance across the bend, made it two thousand yards: the circuit is thirty miles. During the whole course, the land of the bend is low, with occasional bluffs; that on the opposite side, high prairie ground and long ridges of darks bluffs." (Lewis. 1814. Vol. 1, p. 78.)

Journal Entry 1804 Oct 2: "We were not able to hunt to-day; for as there are so many Indians in the neighbourhood, we were in constant expectation of being attacked, and were therefore forced to keep the party together and be on our guard." (Lewis. 1814. Vol. 1, p. 96.)
