Lewis, Clark and his crew were fnally headed in the direction they wanted, that was West. They didn't realize the fact that the weren't only heading west but also into grizzly country. This didn't scare lewis one bit, he believed a man with a gun could take down a bear extremely easy. This whole thought changed when Lewis and several of his men spotted a pair of grizzlies. They wounded one of the bears, which managed to escape. But the other ran at Lewis, chasing him about 80 yards.
