Kimooenim Creek Lunch Site
Columbia County Washington
“Saturday, May 3d, 1806”
The Corps of Discovery crossed the “high plains” and descended to this location after a cold morning of rain, snow, and hail. They described the Kimooenim Creek (Tucannon River) much as you see it here including willows and cottonwood growing along it, a pebbled bottom, and low banks. Traces of the trail they followed can be seen in the canyon to west of the river and on the hill to the east immediately south of the Marengo Grade road. After “dining” at this location, the expedition proceeded eastward over the hills to the south and continued on the Pataha Creek near US Highway 12.
This marker was placed here for your interest with cooperation of the landowner.
