Regarding Lewis and Clark. The Lewis and Clark Expedition crossed over the formidable Bitterroot Mountains of north central Idaho. They were rescued and befriended by Nez Perce Indians in the area. After camping near the confluence of the Snake River and Clearwater River, they continued their journey westward to the Pacific Ocean. The present day cities of Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, Washington are named after the leaders of the famous expedition.
