Took the weekend off....

Decided not to toil away in the driveway this weekend(Number three will have to wait), and instead, decided to go fishing/hiking up in RMNP. My roommate and I hiked up to Lawn Lake, and then to Crystal Lake, elevation:LL;10,875ft CL;11,324ft, UNREAL. Climbed up 3,325ft in just under 8 miles, great trail, great lakes, beautiful fish, truly awesome. Here are some pics. Jim


Looking down on Lawn Lake from Crystal Lake.

Looking NW from Crysal Lake.

Cutthroat in Lawn Lake.

Fishing Lawn Lake.
By the way, it's all catch and release, natural flys and lures only, did I mention how beautiful these fish are??? I tend to play in the SE side of the park but the Fall River side blew my mind this weekend, I need to win the lottery, wow too much to see and do. Thanks again, Jim.

Man, from my experiences in this state you might as well go check in at a holiday inn, solitude seems to be imposible to find at campgrounds.

Phillip my friend, real camping is not done at a camp ground or a hoilday inn for that matter. Look west, take a deep breath, and go. XJ's are not ment to be seen at chatfield or cherry creek unless it pulling a boat.
