Clark camped near this area (near present day Park City) in July 1806 and constructed two dug-out canoes from the cottonwood trees there. During this six day stay, July 19-24, they completed the canoes, replaced a supply of dried meat, and had half their horses stolen. It was on July 24th after leaving the Park City area that they saw the Buffalo Mirage about where the Yellowstone and Stillwater County lines meet today.
