Part 3 ? Just like a band of gypsies we go down the highway, following a setting sun, and heading west to Cali-forn-i-a. We are on the road again and frantically I scribble a myriad thoughts about this journey, an adventure for students learning history, wilderness skills and maybe even a few things about themselves. This New Mexico adventure is on the downside and as we ascend the Colorado Plateau and disappear into the mesas I reflect on the words of Lord Byron, ?

Colorado Adventure, Part III With a sigh, I scribble my final writings about This Colorado Adventure, an odyssey for students studying history, themselves and survival. Last week, we had just finished a seven-day pack trip. So, let me continue my story. Well, I did survive those college kids in that wild cowboy town, Durango. Did you think I wouldn't? When they start falling off their horses, I'll be the last to go! I rounded up my students from the El Rancho Saloon, we pulled our pistols and shot our way out.

In 1860 Sir Richard Burton, the famed British explorer, departed for Africa to discover the fabled source of the Nile. As a child, I was fascinated by Burton.

Part One We're heading to Montana and with the pedal to the metal we are swift as we cut through the Colorado Plateau; each passing mile takes us deeper into this Montana adventure. Sitting in the back of the van with 13 college students and staring into open country I scribble my thoughts on loose pieces of paper; and the white lines of the road that quickly evaporate and then reappear seem to keep time with the rhythms of the highway, the wind and the grinding sounds where rubber meets the road.

I am drawn to the captains. My relationship with Lewis and Clark began years earlier when I first read their journals. I gained a measure of these men and came to like them as people. I am continuously compelled to walk in their footsteps, so once again I'm headed to Montana. Each passing mile takes us deeper into this adventure. Sitting in the back of the van with 13 college students, I scribble my thoughts on loose pieces of paper, intermittently glancing at the countryside we're passing.
