Inscription.  "...from the singular appearance of this place I called it the gates of rocky mountains." Captain Meriwether Lewis, Friday, July 19, 1805

After the difficult portage around the five falls of the Missouri River, the Corps of Discovery continue on their journey to the Pacific Ocean. As they followed the course of the Missouri River into what Captain Lewis called the gates of the mountains," the expedition had just encountered a small section of the Rocky Mountains, and were soon to discover the impressive span of peaks they would have to cross before the onslaught of winter. Their difficult journey into the Rocky Mountains had now begun.
