This photo shows the slow, deep, muddy Malad River. Everyone had a problem crossing this`miserable stream. It got its French name meaning sickness, from the Mountain Men who got sick when they ate the Beaver meat. The Hudson Bay fur trapper Peter Skein Ogden doubted his men and ate some beaver meat and got violently sick for several days. The beaver apparently assimilated the poison from some plant roots.
