Clint: You're absolutely correct, on a bike that ride is awesome.

Troutwhisperer: I know what you mean, the cutty's are beautiful. Wish I lived a little closer.

Not much time to write a long text but here's some stuff from my past three weeks at the our camp at the lake. There was a bit of a heat wave right after the fourth of July, it was 86* on the porch till the sun came around then it was hotter.

Generally I find some pretty cool stuff around the cabin, this is Alaskan Dog Wood after the blooms have passed.

Larry,

I chinked the entire interior last week. The week before I put a fresh coat of stain on all the logs. I have enough T-111 under the building to skirt it with but have to frame out the piers before I can mount the skirting. The new windows are two 36 X 60" picture windows with a 36 X 24 in the middle. The view of the lake from inside is incredible.

I've done a lot of Bush clearing also. Each time we get a good rain I burn the brush piles. We have a high flow Honda water pump on the lake shore so there is no danger of the fire getting out of control. It has been a full summer of work.

I'm headed to Willow Creek in the morning.

Ard: The new windows certainly gives you a great view of the lake. I sure like the look of the logs, the stain has done a great job bringing out the color in the wood!

Here are a few pictures of Rocky Mountain National Park. The wife and I did a big loop on the bikes today and went across Trail Ridge Road which crosses RMNP, I think the top is a little over 12,000 ft, but the weather today was gorgeous. Lots of bikes up there, most are travelling through to Sturgis which starts on Monday.

Default Finaly got some fish

Took a short trip down a local river yesterday. The water was torn up and visibility was near 0 or 10% but I know this area and I know the bottom. We were alone and there were many sockeye in the trench. There is a deep troth down the far side of the river.

The day was sunny and turned quite warm by afternoon. The orange flies were made of dyed bunny fur and the blue one I call The German. Nothing fancy but in low visibility they are my go to wets.

After a trip to shore I put the grab on another one;

Nancy worked really hard but lost her red right at shore. They come off the hook at the worst times. She had a ball and is becoming a good caster. Now I have to teach her how to "Be the fly" ya gotta know what that fly is doing if you are going to consistently catch fish.

Ard: Great pictures and congrats on the sockeye! Wow, the water visibility is down. Looks like you had a great time on the water. Boy do I miss fishing for Sockeye's.........nothing better than a fresh Sockeye on the grill.
