Pompey's Pillar National Monument
—Lewis & Clark National Landmark —
The signature is still there. Only fools destroy but it had to be protected from vandals by a steel screen erected by the Northern Pacific Railway Co.
The party camped a few miles down the Yellowstone that night and the buffalo made so much noise that they had difficulty sleeping.
Erected by Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Department of the Interior.
