In 1954, I was working in N.W. Montana. I was a city kid from Chicago and this was my first time away from home living in Montana for the year.

· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

Adirondack end of summer mornings can be cold and damp, especially before 10 am., so borrowing my daughter’s Macinaw was a necessity.
