Lewis and Clark’s Journey through Idaho

Way back in 1805, Lewis and Clark entered Idaho at Lemhi Pass, which is on the border between Idaho and Montana. The main objective was to find a passage through the mountains and contact the Shoshone tribe and see if they could borrow horses. The pass was named in 1855 by Mormon missionaries for King Limhi, a character from the Book of Mormon.
