June 15, 1805 Dear Diary, Today may be the last day that I write in this journal. It would a shame to leave a world as unbelievable as the one I have discovered under the command of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Even if I am bound for heaven, I don’t believe that even it, of all places, could compare to this. We came upon a discouraging discovery today. We finally chose a path, after a week long dispute over which river was the Missouri River. A while after we set out, we were puzzled by a distant roar that almost sounded like thunder. As we came closer, we all realized with dread that the sound came from a treacherous waterfall, the so-called “Great Falls,” screaming in our faces and blocking our path as if it knew we could not proceed. I felt as if someone had cast a storm cloud inside me, pummeling my insides with rain and drenching them to the point of despair. As a remedy, I hope that a recollection of all of my experiences on this journey will lift my spirits. Today we saw many creatures that I could have never imagined.
