NPRINGS RADIO EXPEDITIONS Show: Lolo Trail Log of DAT #: 3 Engineer: McQuay Date: July 25, 2001 0:49 This is July 25th, 8:47am ...testing the spaced omnis ... Walking to pond, ducks & birds, traffic passing by. 1:15 - 3:50 ambi -something droning, can hear engines passing, birds chirping, 2:54 -car starting, car doors slamming 4:20 McQuay: MS, July 25th, we're at .. horses going to take us up to the trail 4:35 - 5:00 Bud:...that ridge is all uphill except for the occasional saddle, so I'd hang onto that 5:58 Bud: A lot of history in that area it's a focal point in the country. 6:17 Alex: And Lewis & Clark came through but they didn't stop there? 6:23 Bud: They went down the stream a little ways -they didn't stop at the meadow...They're doing a lot of work up there, planning to renovate that whole interpreting center. (7: 11) 7:16 A: I saw that little rock ... mound of bare rock. ..

We in the forest service were saving the country. We knew there were tremendous resources here, but we didn't know how they would be used in the future ...the historical aspects were important, but they weren't elevated quite to the sense of significance that they are today. The whole society today is looking at places like this ...One thing we did know -we were here to protect it until the nation decided what we were going to do with it. Our job was to take care of it, and we feIt...that if we didn't do a good job, the gov't would get somebody else who would. 12:08 AC: So you were here in 1955, then . 12:13 Bud: Yeah ..
