    Looking for a little clean, moving water.

    Departure was delayed by mechanical difficulties so Dawn's crack was seen on the wrong side of the mountains

    a little milky but not bad; some trout in here but better for pike

    their deliveries tend to be late

    I don't even think rootbeer can save that

    a bit high here

    the boat ramp is just to the left as you can ('t) see

    [​IMG]


    close as I could get

    on the comeback trail; 40 years ago, exhaust from the aluminium plant pretty much stripped it

    backside

    nope

    [​IMG]


    better, but not quite; jailbait for 3 more days, anyway

    [​IMG]


    train dumped a load of corn here years ago; place was lousy with bears for quite a while

    [​IMG]


    right on the dashed line

    [​IMG]


    Eastslope on the left, Westslope on the right

    [​IMG]


    leaving the tight contour lines behind

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    some places are best seen in the rear-view mirror, heading out of town; this is one of those places

    the local inhabitants and birds voice their disappointment

    [​IMG]


    I got a thing for these like I do beaverslides

    [​IMG]

    speed goats (loads of Huns running around in this stuff, too)

    [​IMG]

    a few, very few bwo's up but no interest, everything came to the nymph; say "cheese" cheeker

    [​IMG]


    was planning on spending a couple days but made the mistake of checking in with home base; repair skills needed ASAP so back in the car (scenery makes the drive easy)
