Inscription.  "Struck the Rochejhone 1/2 a mile below the branch we came down & 1 1/2 ms. below where it passes out of the Rocky mountains....The horses feet are very sore many of them Can Scercely proceed on over the Stone and gravel in every other respect they are Sound and in good Sperits." William Clark, July 15, 1806

A short distance south of here, Captain William Clark and his party arrived at the Yellowstone River. They stopped and rested for three hours to eat dinner and feed the horses.
The next day Clark used a buffalo hide to make moccasins for the horses' sore feet, which seemed to relieve their misery. Over the next ten days, all their horses were taken by the Crow Indians who lived in the area.
