Holbert Fear's most memorable day in a career as a hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey was in 1917, near Hanna, Wyoming. Fear was sent out to measure the flow of the North Platte River at a stream gaging station out in the wilderness. On his way back Fear and a companion were beset by a series of fateful events that made this expedition one of his most memorable.
