Terry Engelder remembers that they also took a "trip through Yellowstone and into southwest Idaho (led by) Barry Voight and Rob Scholten.  I have been fly fishing once in my life and that was with Barry Voight's rod on the Madison River during the trip through Yellowstone and into southwest Idaho."

Duff remembers that on an excursion to the New World Mining District in the Cooke City area, there was an avalanche.  All roads out were blocked.

Barry Voight remembers that "I took the 1967 class to the Yellowstone/Tetons/Hebgen earthquake areas. Also took them to visit Scholten in the field in SW Montana, where RS almost got in a fist fight with a contractor named McCrosson (I think) who threw his clothes on the wet floor at the local swimming pool. I remember we had a water polo game there."
