Salmon River (Idaho)

Wednesday August 14th [1805]

"I now asked Cameahwait by what rout the Pierced nosed indians [Nez Perce], who he informed me inhabited this river below the mountains, came over to the Missouri; this he informed me was to the north, but added that the road was a very bad one.... however knowing that Indians had passed, and did pass, at this season on that side of this river to the same below the mountains, my rout was instantly settled in my own mind...."
