Berries & 'Bows


'Behold, the greatest view in the world'


There it is, the greatest view ever!


...Turned around and this is the view ....you better believe I went black bear on these...


And these

That's what I'm talking about...never seen wild blueberries this big...also wouldn't expect them to grow that big at 5300 feet.


A high wilderness valley...
Very unique place, we went down to investigate...

...thought this was a good looking stream to fish... Turned out to be a small tributary of a good wild trout stream...decided to make it into there the next day EARLY, hiking in at least 2 miles to get to some good wild spots and then fishing back upstream. Actually ended up hiking 8 miles! 4.76 mile hike in, but it was worth it. All wild trout on this river, no stockers whatsoever. Number of other fishermen? zero. Priceless...



100 yard long pool; time for some casting practice! Heard there were good sized browns in the pools with rainbows in the riffles all along the river, so I was prepared for non-stop action....


First fish of the day, really beautiful 'bow.

Waterfall (15ft)


...another rainbow, they came fast and furious after I got above the falls (and no more chubs)...


Flume!




More rainbows!





...and again....



...after a while I just started releasing them in the water like this fella...thought this was a cool picture.
I am definitely heading back here again soon, hopefully to get into some of the bigger brown trout that are rumored to be lurking in the depths.
