Inscription.  Captain Lewis recorded on June 29, 1806: "...at noon we arrived at the quamas flatts (sic) on the Creek of the same name and halted to graize (sic) our horses and dine having traveled 12 miles. We passed our encampment of the (13th) September at 10 m. where we halted there is a little plain of about 50 acres plentifully stocked with quamash and from appearances this frames one of the principal stages or encampments of the indians who pass the mountains on this road..."
