oh my, this was a thrill. we were invited to the mountains where a trout filled river is just beyond the cabin. as i look at these photos, i can feel a bit of an adrenaline rush.
once i made a deal with the river that i would finish the job, i caught one. then i gutted it. then we ate it.
it was much harder than i thought (mentally and physically) to get it clean. i’ve never done anything like it.
for all the hours spent in a canoe on the river with my children and friends, thank you, friends, thank you for this experience. and thank you for the photos.

Btw, why didn’t I get the email notice for this new post? Is it because the new setting? So, I have to subscribe again?
The photo of Micah’s delight watching you gut that fish is priceless. You might have amazed him even more than you amazed yourself. Way to go, Hero.
You got some pretty big fish … Did the really big one get away?
I’m glad you had soooo muuuuch fuuuun!!!! Oma/Omi and Opa/Opi.
Looks like you stayed in a nice little spot in Colorado. Don’t you love it here? :)
My parents, Ladd, and I found Heaven on earth this summer during their trip to Colorado. There was a big lake so clear you could watch the trout swim. Every few seconds a trout would jump out of the water to catch flies. I thought of Jerry and how he would have LOVED to spend his afternoon up there. :)
