Journal Entry 1806 Jul 7: "After seven miles we reached the foot of a ridge, which we ascended in a direction north 45 degrees east, through a low gap of easy ascent from the westward, and on descending it were delighted at discovering that this was the dividing ridge between the waters of the Columbia and those of the Missouri." (Lewis. 1814. Vol. 2, p. 337.)
