An excerpt from the report: The Butte de Morale is a prominent landmark, rising two hundred and eighty-two feet above the Shyenne river, near its source. Not far west of this the camp of July eighteenth was beautifully located on a range of hills nearly surrounded by salt lakes, though an excellent spring near by furnished an abundant supply of cold fresh water. Here wood was found for the first time after leaving Lake Jessie, ninety miles, back. Near Mouse river salt marshes were passed, and in some places deposits of salt a quarter of an inch thick were observed. The configuration, of Mouse River valley, as well as of its tributaries, resembles, that of the Shyenne.—(See sketch.) High ridges divide the plateau bordering the stream from that extending into the prairie, with coulees intersecting it and opening into the river on the one side, gradually growing imperceptible as they make into the prairie on the other. The general course of the river, and of its principal branch, the Riviere des Lacs, is nearly parallel to that of the Missouri, for the distance we followed it, of eighty-seven and a half miles to its source, and separated, from that river by the Plateaudu Missouri., varying from thirty-five to fifty-five miles in width. Many of the coulees reach to the edge of the Missouri plateau; and in the examination for a good passage for the wagon train, secluded spots were found where beetling crag and .winding stream, venerable trees and greenest award combined in scenes of much picturesque beauty. Its valley is from half a mile to a mile wide, about two hundred feet below the prairie level, and is well wooded with maple, oak, ash, and elm. The. deep coulees run back from it for fifteen or twenty miles, apd must be avoided bykeeping far. from the river itself. They usually contain a stream of good water, and sufficient timber on the banks for camping purposes. One of the bluffs of the coteau,twentymiles from Mouse ri.ver, was found by Mr. Moffett to be seven hundred and two.feet above: its, level, and ahill seven miles from camp rose to two hundred and fifty-six feet. The distance from Mouse river to Fort Union, as travelled, was 118 1/4 miles. The route crosses the Grand Coteau, a collection of high, strong, and barren knolls, with great numbers of small ponds lodged' between the hills. Scarcely any wood is to be found, except a little on Whte Earth river and .its branches; but as water and grass are usually plentiful, this. ridge will become, a good grazing country. The general elevation is between 2,000 and 2,500 feet, and it descends again at the Missouri (Fort Union) to 2,019 feet. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !
