Sunday, August 4. Emery Bay campground on Hungry Horse Reservoir 6:40 p.m.

Today was move day, and that is about all we accomplished. The new campsite is really beautiful and somewhat remote. We have several sites overlooking Hungry Horse Reservoir; the Flathead Range is to the east and northeast. We are in the Flathead National Forest, which borders Glacier National Park. I can see the snow-capped mountains of the park from my picnic table seat. The area is mostly pine and spruce forest, but our hillside is fairly open, giving space to colorful wildflowers.
It rained this morning as we broke camp, but the rain fly Steven put up kept us dry. Charlie insisted on a group meeting to get things in order; the large community tent was ideal. He was concerned—as was I—that we were wasting too much time with our camp chore routine. The food and gear trailers must be constantly rearranged. As our Support Team becomes more familiar with one another and the need routine we are becoming more efficient, and we all contributed ideas to save time.
I just watched a videotape the Public Lands Interpretive Association produced last year. Steven Maurer wrote the text, Dave did some editing, and the whole thing was done for about $1500. It shows the idea of the public lands journey, the preparation for the trek, a history of public lands, and the goal of educating the public about our commonly held lands. It is a perfect introduction to the programs I must present, the first one on Wednesday. It will still be necessary to update audiences on the trek itself, and we now have the digital cameras that will be the key to that. I expect another digital camera from NGS tomorrow and maybe the several other tapes produced by the PLIA.
