In August of 1965, a diverse group of 29 men began what would be referred to as “The Last Trip.”
Leaving a sand and rock covered beach south of the confluence of the Shoshone and Big Horn Rivers in five rubber boats, these men floated down the Big Horn River through Big Horn Canyon.
On Jan. 28, 2010, starting at 7 p.m. at the Big Horn Canyon Visitor Center, Wes Meeker of Lovell will share his story and film footage of that historic trip. A second film, taken by five adventurous men in August of 1949, will be shown afterwards.
An expanded story will be in Thursday's Chronicle.
