Scobey to West Yellowstone (No. 106)
First Aired Monday, May 01, 1995
We visit the Prairie Symphonette, Butte's Pork Chop John's, and a baling-twine teepee near Wise River--and then stop for a bit of fly fishing on the Madison River. William Marcus hosts from the Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site near Deer Lodge.
The Prairie Symphonette is still playing concerts in Scobey and Pork Chops John’s is still a Butte favorite (with outlets in other Montana cities). Maggie Merriman still gives fly fishing lessons in West Yellowstone. In a sad post script to this episode, Marion and Margaret Pyeatt, the couple who built the baling twine teepee near Wise River, died in a tragic accident in their home in Dec. 2004. Margaret was a beloved teacher and Marion an accomplished tradesman in Dillon. They will be missed by all who knew them.
