McCune remembers McCune

   Linda McCune, Woodinville resident and widow of Seattle's late veteran TV host, Don McCune, will present 30 half-hour segments of Don's KOMO-TV series, Exploration Northwest, at the International Sportsmen's Exposition Feb. 10-14 at the Kingdome.

   The portrait shown above was taken when McCune was on his way to travel and record the route that Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce took when the tribe eluded the U.S. Cavalry into Canada.

   The series won 26 Emmy awards in 31 seasons, and the videos will be available for sale at the Expo, which will showcase more than 300 exhibitors of interest to Northwest anglers, hunters, campers, and travel seekers who love outdoor adventure.
