Lewis & Clark in North Dakota

Sunday, October 21, 1804
A driving northeast wind, cold temperatures, and freezing rain and snow led Lewis and Clark to seek shelter after only 7 miles. During the day, they passed the mouth of the Heart River learning from their Arikara passenger that the Mandans had sacred sites in that area. Several other abandoned earth lodge villages were reported, including one located in "a butifull & extensive plain." Clark killed a buffalo near their campsite northeast of modern Mandan on the west bank of the river.
