The morning of Monday, September 4, 2000, dawned cloudy and damp. It wasn't raining, but had been and, as Dorothea and I made ready to continue along the Lewis and Clark Trail, it was easy to envision what the Corps of Discovery had faced in November 1805. Envision it we did, but that didn't stop us from having a hot breakfast and setting off from Portland, Oregon, in a warm and dry car.

I need to back up a bit. Although I-15 between Great Falls and Helena in itself is just another freeway, the country through which it passes can hold one's interest - what could be seen of it because of the smoke. The road follows the Missouri River and even crosses it several times. It is easy to use your imagination and see the Corps of Discovery trying to maneuver the heavy canoes against the river's flow.

Created: April 24, 2012
One of the standard modern-day motoring clichés is the desire for a modern-day Sprite – a synonym for an open-topped two-seater that’s cheap to buy and run.
