    I've completed Phase I of the trek to the source. I'm not really equipped to go any further upstream. The roads are really bad, and only go so far. Tomorrow, Phase II will be an approach to the spring from the other direction.

    I found this sign sort of funny.

      What's the weather like? I thought humid and hazy until I saw your post about smoke.

        It's been hot and dry all week, which is exacerbating the fire situation. Even at 9000 feet, it's T-shirt weather. Smell of smoke is pretty heavy this evening.

          Well, after 2000 miles or so, I'm headed home, which will be another thousand. You'll just have to click the link to see if I found the source of the Missouri or not.

            By the way, Ed, I had to chuckle at the safety pin, substituting for the usual screw, holding your glasses together! Time for another work order upon your return.

            Yeah, that was tactical field repair.

          Congratulations, Ed, on reaching your goal! It would have been a heckofanote to have traveled all that way and not found the spring. I'm glad you persevered. And I appreciate learning a new word along the way -- cairn. Safe travels home.

                Great adventure Ed. Been through that part of the country several times during winter, very inhospitable not taking into account your elevation. You picked the right time.

                      River trips can be very enjoyable and scenic. Ed's was much more ambitious than the Columbia River drive we took a few years ago from Cannon Beach on the Oregon coast to one of my favorite breweries (Full Sail) in Hood River then up to Seattle.
