Friday June 20 - From
Mary Jane Miles
We arrived at Missouri Headwaters State Park and Tom led us on a hike while
the bus went ahead for Don to set up lunch in the picnic grove. Heavy rain
(almost hail) overtook us and, by the time we arrived at the grove we had a
new realization of the arduous trek of the corps. But, our Capt. Lewis
dispensed only coffee -- not a "ration." A beautiful sight, where the
Jefferson, Madison and Gallitin Rivers come together to form the Missouri!!

Our instructor, Tom Laidlaw, loves to see the confluence of rivers so he
took us on a walk to see the 3 rivers, Gallatin, Jefferson, & Madison
becoming the Missouri River. Black clouds loomed on the horizon but Don Popejoy, our coordinator said: "It's going the other way, you won't get wet.
Well, we did; it thundered & lightninged and rained on the "Corps of
Discovery." We got back to our lunch site and ate in wet clothes & boarded the
bus for a 2 hr. ride to Helena, MT. A true Lewis and Clark experience.
