Hoping for an Easy River Trip to the PacificClark explored the first few miles of the rugged canyon of the Salmon below here late in August 1805. His small advance party camped here with poor but friendly Indians. Clark reported that the Salmon "is almost one continued rapid," and that passage "with Canoes is entirely impossible." so the expedition had to buy pack horses and go 110 miles north to an Indian trail across the mountains.
