Highway 200 tracks across the country that Lewis first
crossed ( 1806)
Between Lincoln and Ovando, Montana- "The prairie of
the knobs". On July 6, 1806, Lewis' exploration
party crossed “the prairie of the
knobs” and Lewis identified the path they were following as a
warpath of the Hidatsa. They passed the remains of many Indian
lodges, and crossed the Continental Divide at Lewis and Clark
Pass, and the next day saw the
first buffalo since entering the
mountains a year earlier.
