quickie to the mtns.

wife was gone for the w/e so i packed it up and seeked? out higher ground to get outta da heat for a couple days.

the plan was to run up and do a bit of fly fiashin.

hit the dirt


over 4 peaks,,,, roosevelt lake in the distance, gonna run round that before i can get u in the mtns, way in the background


one of my fav spots on cherry creek (part of the AZBDR) there is always a spring flowing and a great cliff ruin to hike to


lunch stop,,, pulled pork at antlers cafe, crap pic.


haigler creek, game and fish was stocking it with trout but i didnt get a fly wet here,,, i'll wish i had before i'm done.


room with a view for friday night,, but it was awefull windy so i got off the edge and into the forest




dammit!!


i called this spot camp,,, forgot to turn on airplane mode and the battery went dead quick, sadly couldnt get a pic of the 5-6 elk wandering about in the field next to me about an hour later


i waived that fly rod around all day sat. at three creeks and two lakes, didnt catch a single fish, glad i wasnt depending on my skills for suppper. oh well, had a good time anyway.

At least you got to whet your line a bit!
That area and the bradshaws are my favorite. Did you run across any hippies?

Nice place. I was there in your state early in Spring and was very impressed. Clean and very nice all around. I want to go back and spend more time in the Canyon.
