Large trees loom in Bernard DeVoto Memorial Grove. American author and historian Bernard DeVoto, a scholar of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, edited a compilation from the explorers' journals. He found a personal sanctuary in the memorial cedar grove that bears his name--as can you today as you stop along the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway.

Traditional tipis dot the landscape of the Nez Perce Indian Reservation. But don't be fooled: some are intended as visitor lodging. At Nez Perce National Historical Park in Spalding, in summer you can assist park rangers in demonstrating the proper way to pitch a Nez Perce lodge.

A dugout canoe rests behind an eduational sign at Canoe Camp. While occupied by ancestors of the Nimiipuu for over 4,000 years, this Nez Perce National Historical Park component site is named for the brief stay of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in September-October 1805. Here the explorers, with native assistance, felled Ponderosa pines and constructed dugout canoes for their continued journey to the Pacific.
