Thanks David.  I am after a 3D plot that looks like the following with the Day-Date on the x axis and the Hour-Date on the y-axis. The desired output looks like this:

http://www.slas.us/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=2817

Instead of converting the dates to a numeric Julianday, I would like to use dates along the x-axis.

If have not run it, but the 2D plot you suggested is not the desired plot.  The 2D plot would be for all-hours-on-all days against all-counts.

Thanks again for your ongoing help. - Kurt

Hi,
you should explain better what you want.
In a time series, the independent variable is normally the time. But beside the time you give 2 data values. Is this supposed to be 2 different time series or a vector valued function?
Assuming the former, we need DateListPlot not ListPlot3D. We extract the data in the correct form using "Part" or for short: [[..]]:
DateListPlot[{lstTriple[[All, {1, 3}]], lstTriple[[All, {1, 2}]]}]
