On a Road to Nowhere

This is What Heaven Looks Like
It's easy to fall out of touch and lose track of old friends - even the really good ones.  Thus, when some friends recommended we set up an annual fishing trip reunion, I was all over it.

This year's destination - Yellowstone National Park.

Select members of the old Gainesville posse flew into Idaho Falls and we packed up the truck and camp trailer and headed for the park.

After setting up a base camp, we hiked into an area where we thought the salmonflies would be hatching.  They were right on schedule.

The reward for our long hike? Dozens of cutthroat trout that were eager to rise from the depths to our dry flies.


Wildlife sightings included bison, a grizzly (too quick for the camera), elk, an osprey and an extremely aggressive marmot.

"Hey, Nice Marmot!"

I can think of no better place to spend time with old friends than in the backcountry, 
on the water.

Thanks for a great time, gents.
