This small part
of Eastern Idaho is made
famous by the Lewis and Clark Expedition. In 1805 they crossed over
the Divide very near Lemhi Estates, at what is now called Lemhi Pass. It
was near Lemhi Pass that Sacajawea met and recognized her brother whom
she hadn't seen since she was kidnapped from the valley as a young girl.
After their happy reunion the expedition traded for horses, and the
entire party descended into the Lemhi and Salmon Valleys where they
spent several weeks.

Eastern Idaho is often neglected
in many documentaries of Lewis and Clark, this is where they had some
of their most telling adventures. Sacajawea was born right here in the
Lemhi Valley, kidnapped as a young girl, and taken far from the area.
Near Lemhi Pass Sacajawea had an exciting reunion with her brother,
and it was the assistance of Sacajawea's tribe that enabled the party
to obtain horses and continue their journey down the western slopw of
the continent on their quest for the sea.
and Clark Expedition was hoping to find an easy river to traverse from
the western slope of the Continental Divide, and their first, obvious,
try was the Salmon River. The Salmon River does, indeed, flow from its
source on the west slope of the Continental Divide all the way to the
ocean. It meets the Snake River on the western borders of Idaho, then
joins the Columbia, and finally to the ocean. The problem was that the
section of river between the location of Salmon, Idaho down to the location
of Riggins, Idaho (on the western Idaho border) is a wild and difficult
river--impassable by canoe!

Today, this section
of river in Eastern Idaho,
is some of the most exciting white water rafting in the country. Back
in the day of Lewis and Clark is was considered impassable to the point
that it was called, "The River of No Return." Anyone who went
down it, was sure to never return.
If you float the
Salmon River today, you will have an exciting ride. But will be experiencing
a river slightly tamed since the days of Lewis and Clark. In the early
fifty's several of the more lethal rapids were blown out with dynamite,
making them still quite exciting, but passable.
Clark, however, were not easily deterred by the Indians tales of terrible
water. So they hiked through the valley, and headed down river to give
the canoes a try. They took a few rapids, but after passing the location
of today's small town of Shoup, and viewing the Pine Creek Rapids, they
was starting to set in pretty quickly at this time, and the delay in
the Salmon River Valley took its toll. The Corps of Discovery headed,
with their guide, up over the mountains into Montana again, and seriously
lost the trail in a sudden (and very cold) snow storm. This pass is
today called Lost Trail Pass.
