Near Glenwood in Idaho County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
Salmon Trout Camp
"... Several Salmon trout were Seem..."
On the morning of June 18, 1806, George Droulliard and Private Shannon were dispatched from Hungery Creek to the Camas Prairie to secure Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) guides. The remainder of the party traveled west, reaching this small meadow in the evening. The hunters searched for game, but were not able to obtain enough deer and bear to feed the men. They did manage to catch some "generally poor salmon trout" or steelhead trout in the creek.
The party remained here until the morning of June 21, 1806 when they made their way to the quamash flats camp near present-day Weippe.
Capt. William Clark, June 19, 1806

Should we get a guide from this place it will Save us two days march through some of the worst road through those Mountains, crouded with fallin timber mud holes and steep hills &c. ..."
