It's just six weeks away
By Will Maines

IT’S POP QUIZ time. Quick, can anyone tell me what is six weeks away?
I’ll give you a few hints. First, it is essentially a large rectangle. How large? It is a rectangle containing 70,665 square miles. You may want to quibble on a tenth of a mile or so, but it is roughly 360 miles wide and 230 miles high.
Lewis and Clark passed through it at one time, as did Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, Sieur de la Verendrye. The former you are probably familiar with, the latter quite likely not, although there is a provincial park in Quebec which bears his name.
