Decision Point

Should we take the left river or the right river ?
The Corps camped here several days and scouted each of hte streams to make sure they were going the right way. A mistake at this point probably would have resulted in failure or even worse–being totally stranded in the Bitterroot Mountains for the hardest part of the winter. They had been warned about the upcoming great falls, but not about the river choice.
The Captains split up and scouted each one and then decided the South stream seemed most likely to be the one leading to the great falls. They chose correctly and the mission continued.
