Hugo Johnson recalls growing up in the Badger Two Medicine area as a guide in a family of outfitters. He explains his father's work on the crew that built the first roads into the area. Johnson talks about the effects of grazing in the area, as well as other uses of natural resources (possible drilling for oil and gas), which leads him to a discussion of his trip to Washington, with other residents, to lobby for designating Badger Two Medicine as a wilderness area. Throughout the interview, Johnson discusses the use of ATVs in the area and his opposition to this activity.
