We caught quite a few trout but didn't keep them because there seems to be some sort of nasty fungal infection on many of them and there were allot of them dead. It looked like ICK to me (I used to work in a petsmart fish department so I know all sort of fun fish diseases). But it was fun to catch and release and the kids had a great time in the woods.
The Wilderness had a horrible fire about 5 years ago and looks much different than it did when I was growing up, or even when we visited there when we first were married. Husband proposed to me up there after a romantic picnic in a little meadow next to a creek. Lots of wonderfull memories up there!
A Tom Turkey and his hens. He gobbled at us and puffed up to show us who was boss.
Viking Boy on his first fishing trip. He had a blast and loved every part of it.

The lonely arid lands on our way there. We drove for an hour and only saw one other car. The Blues are in the distance.
