On October 15th, 1805, Sgt. Patrick Gass wrote of this stretch of the Snake River: "This river in general is very handsome, except at the rapids, where it is risking both life and property to pass; and even these rapids, when the bare view or prospect is considered distinct from the advantages of navigation, may add to its beauty, by interposing variety and scenes of romantick grandeur where there is so much uniformity in the appearance of the country"

The character of the river has changed greatly since the sights of the corps of discovery. The numerous rapids described in detail by the party have all been submerged since the taming of the watershed by dams.
