January 6, 1806
Captain Clark set out after an early breakfast with the party in two canoes as had been concerted the last evening. Charbono and his Indian woman were also of the party; the Indian woman was very importunate to be permitted to go, and was therefore indulged. She observed that she had traveled a long way with us to see the great waters, and that now that monstrous fish was also to be seen, she thought it very hard she could not be permitted to see either.

From this point I beheld the grandest and most pleasing prospects which my eyes ever surveyed. The innumerable rocks… against which the seas brake with great force gives this coast a most romantic appearance.
--William Clark
