Sending males forward to reconnoitre, they back with an account of a much wider and deeper channel above, and once more we felt inspired to persevere. We driven on for ten miles and encamped on a small island for the evening. We saw a weird mountain within the distance to the south, of a conical shape, remoted, and completely coated with snow. may well the 20th. We now entered right into a larger channel, and pursued our path with little interruption for 16 miles, via a clayey kingdom of surprising personality, and approximately destitute of plants. At evening we encamped on a really huge island, coated with tall timber, a lot of that have been new to us. We remained at this spot for 5 days to make a few maintenance within the piroque. in the course of our sojourn right here an incident of observe happened. The banks of the Missouri during this local are precipitous, and shaped of a weird blue clay, which turns into excessively slippery after rain. The cliffs, from the mattress of the circulate again to the space of 100 yards, or thereabouts, shape a succession of steep terraces of this clay, intersected in different instructions via deep and slender ravines, so sharply worn through the motion of water at a few distant time period as to have the looks of synthetic channels. The mouths of those ravines, the place they debouche upon the river, have a really impressive visual appeal, and glance from the other financial institution, via moonlight, like big columns status erect upon the shore. To an observer from the uppermost terrace the complete descent in the direction of the movement has an indescribably chaotic and dreary air. No crops of any variety is noticeable. John Greely, the Prophet, the interpreter Jules, and myself began after breakfast one morning to ascend to the topmost terrace at the south shore for the aim of taking a look round us; briefly to work out what will be noticeable. With nice exertions, and through the use of scrupulous warning, we succeeded in attaining the extent grounds on the summit contrary our encampment. The prairie right here differs from the overall personality of that sort of land in being thickly overgrown for plenty of miles again with cotton-wood, rose timber, red-willow, and broad-leaved willow; the soil being unsteady, and from time to time swampy, like that of the normal low grounds—it contains a black-looking loam, one-third sand, and while a handful of it's thrown into water, it dissolves within the demeanour of sugar, with robust bubbles. in different spots we saw deep incrustations of universal salt, a few of which we accrued and used. Upon achieving those point grounds all of us sat all the way down to leisure, and had scarcely performed so after we have been alarmed via a noisy growl instantly in our rear, continuing from the thick underwood. We began to our toes straight away in nice terror, for we had left our rifles on the island, that we'd be unencumbered within the scramble up the cliffs, and the one hands we had have been pistols and knives. We had scarcely time to assert a note to one another prior to huge, immense brown bears (the first we had but encountered through the voyage) got here speeding at us open-mouthed from a clump of rosebushes.
