My second edition to the thread. Jaw dropping scenery goes hand-in-hand with fly fishing the Rocky Mountain backcountry. To be able to relive the memories of the Rocky Mountain backcountry through these pictures is a treat. I'm a lucky person to be able to live in America and have absolute freedom to wander through such wild country at little or no cost. We ALL are lucky to have some of the finest public lands in the world. I'm surprised more people don't take advantage of this most special resource.
