Santa Rita

Santa Rita

Santa Rita is on the road to the Cut Bank oil and natural gas fields This small town in northwestern Montana is not far from Hay Lake and numerous other glacial lakes in the Glacier National Park region. Santa Rita is also near Camp Disappointment, the northernmost point reached by the Lewis and Clark Expedition. They reached here on July 23, 1806. On the Cut Bank River east of present-day Browning, Lewis could see the river exiting the mountains. He called this northern-most campsite of the expedition "Camp Disappointment" since this meant Marias River did not reach 50 degrees north latitude, which would have extended the boundary of the Louisiana Territory.
