    Using my imagination I can almost see the wagon wheel ruts.

    Apparently they got it wrong back in 1842. But just by a few feet, enough so that some of the houses are in Canada and some in the United States. Some of the houses even have the boundary running through them. This has made for some interesting situations. One involved 30 days of incarceration for a local who went acrost the unmanned border to get gas. It created a bit of an international dispute. It is also the only place in Maine you cannot get to from Maine without going into Canada first . Screenshot_20171210-093959.jpg

    Hopefully they don't have problems with Naegleria fowleri, as that's a nasty bug that has resulted in the closure of historic hot spring spas such as Bath in the UK.

    I live 25 miles west of Charlottesville. This is a marker of John Colter who went on the expedition with Lewis & Clark .Reading the marker tells how he found where Yellowstone National Park is now.People did not believe his stories about it and later called it Colters Hell. The marker is at the intersection of S 340 and left on 608 100 yards on the left in a Bank parking lot. His house was about five miles west of the marker on N 340 ,a mile from my house. I have a few books on the expedition some fiction some real. The only one I know is real is "The Journals of Lewis and Clark" reprinted by John Bakeless in 1964, it has dates,text and places copied from the original journals and can be found in most US libraries. Read it if you can it covers 1804-1806.[​IMG] [​IMG] A statue of Lewis & Clark plus Sacagawea, Charlottesville is talking about removing it because Clark had taken a slave,York with him.A lot of statues in town of Civil War heroes are going down, now covered with tarps(not this one yet).[​IMG] [​IMG]

    I try to refrain from getting political or flaming out something on this forum, but if the politically correct people push this thru, then I am calling bullshit on them. L&C were the first, as far as I know, to allow a man of color to vote when a decision was up for vote, along with the first woman to vote. So screw the PC that would take down statue, or even cover it.

    I suggest you read " Undaunted Courage" by Ambrose, and look at some of the earlier posting by Lewis and Clark on this forum.
