Came here April, 25 1805. He said from the hills it was a awesome view of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers. Lewis could not discover the junction of the rivers immediately because of a heavy wooded area. Lewis said the whole valley was covered with herds of buffalo, elk, and antelope.
Prior to low white settlements in the area, the confluence Area and much of the Yellowstone River Valley was a large Wooded floodplain. Above the flood playing the bass Prairie stretched for miles with rolling Hills. This area of the floodplain was a favorite of hunting ground for native American tribes. Who came from all directions to partake of its beautiful fish and wildlife resources. Fortunately for us still living in United States of America the Yellowstone River it Is still the longest on damn river into United States. It remains mostly natural habitat and is a refuge for many of the Missouri River system native fish. This area mainly undeveloped because it is within military reservation of Ford Buford. If the four had not built in claimed land here the site most likely would've become the site of the city of Williston North Dakota. The confluence is unique in many ways one of which is that Yellowstone is a largeRiver at this point. Ice jams and Laurie old StoneAnd in the Missouri below the confluence have a historically caused flooding.
William Clark on his return trip to St. Louis on August 4 1806 left Capt. Lewis I noted in the tree that he would be moving on you could not stay in the floodplain because the mosquitoes were eaten him alive.
William Clark said there was Beaver in every bend of the River. The Fur trappers came to this area in the early 1800. About 25,000 Beaver and River Otter were trapped in the two rivers.
