I took that trip in the summer of 2003. Was your guide Tim? And did he do the Mann Gulch fire story too? (Perhaps not, as this was a student group.) Anyway, I think that they do an awesome job on that boat tour. Glad you got to go.


What an amazing way to learn!


Shirl, I don't remember if it was Tim or not, but our guide was FANTASTIC. We did stop at Mann Gulch and he explained that tragedy. The kids and I had studied it a little before the trip, but we all understood it so much more to see the steep cliffs on either side.

Mary Lee, you are so right. It was an amazing trip and the kids (and I) learned so much. I'm so lucky that this year's Social Studies curriculum revolves around Montana history- I am going to learn so much!
