Inscription
Two husky freight horses, Tex and Terry, working in the rugged wilderness of the Flathead River's South Fork area, wandered away from their sleigh during the severe winter of 1900-1901.
After struggling for a month in belly-deep snow, they were found almost starved and so weak considerable care and feeding were required before they were strong enough to be led back to civilization.

The name Hungry Horse was given to a mountain, a lake, a creek in the vicinity of where the incident occurred, and later to the dam and town which are located a short distance downstream.
