Clark Canyon Reservoir - In preparation for a canoe crossing of the reservoir, we were treated to an oral and visual history on part of the Lewis and Clark expedition (2004 is the 200th anniversary and there are so many people participating and events planned) by Bureau of Reclamation employee Stephen Morehouse. Stephen arrived is full period regalia. Beautiful buckskin shirt and pants, native jewelry, and furs. He had artifacts of guns, navigation equipment, documents, cooking utensils, baskets, and other articles of clothing. He described day to day life in the camp of the expedition as well as historic moments, such as meeting Sacajawea. It was informative as well as entertaining. It was clear that the subject of Lewis and Clark for Stephen was a true passion.

The following morning, Stephen prepared his 1200 lbs dug-out canoe for the crossing. Three other support team members, Bob Ashley, Bob Van Devin, Michelle Williams and myself, sat in this wonderful reproduction of this craft and paddled across the reservoir. The ride was a bit wobbly at first, but we quickly adjusted and got on our way. It was a beautiful morning and caused a bit of reflection on what the original crossing may have been like. Traveling in these dug out canoes laden with materials, equipment and men on an incredible journey.
