FOLLOW LEWIS AND CLARK-AND LICINI AND TAYLOR-ON THE WEB

Just read your article on Lewis and Clark ("Lewis & Clark's Montana," March, page 92) and thought I would pass on the address for a Web site developed by two Great Falls natives [John Licini and Roland Taylor], who floated the Missouri River in kayaks from its headwaters at Three Forks to the confluence with the Yellowstone River last April, May, and June. They also wanted to retrace a part of Lewis and Clark's journey When you check out the site, you will find extensive excerpts from Lewis's and Clark's journals and also daily journals and photos by the two kayakers. You can find their Web site at http://www.mt.net/-rojomo/.

HORSESHOES-BUT NOT FOR HORSES

I enjoyed the March issue from cover to cover, especially the article on Lewis and Clark. However, I must point out that the horseshoes in the photo on page 95 never graced the feet of any horse-they are strictly the kind used in the game of horseshoes. Real horseshoes have a slightly different shape, one that conforms to the actual shape of a horse's feet, and they are pierced at regular intervals for the nails that hold them to the hoof wall.

LEWIS AND CLARK-AND SACAGAWEA

In the March issue, Rosalie Wright wrote of the explorations of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and their achievements in discovering the wonders of our West (`Across the Wide Missouri," From the Editor, page 8). Now, correct me if I am wrong, but a native woman named Sacagawea was also part of that magnificent exploration group. She deserves the right to stand alongside Lewis and Clark in history as well as in your editorial.

ZIN LOVERS SHARE THEIR FINDS

I enjoyed your article "It's Easy to Love Zins" (Wine Guide, February, page 119). You mentioned vintners using "old vines" on labels and also the famous "Grand-pere" vineyard. What you neglected to mention was a small winery called Renwood/Santino. They produce not only the "old vines" Zinfandel but also the "Grand-pere" vineyard Zinfandel. I challenge you to find better Zinfandels in the world, much less in California.

Re: Karen MacNeil's article on Zinfandel. I have a good addition to her list of wines. …
