All of the pictures you guys have entered are wonderful. I took some pictures while fishing this past week and a few seemed good to post.

I left the bow in the corner to give a sense of scale to this pool.

Looking at where I've been and traveling at fish hunter speed;

This was my spot for a few days and nights, as you can see I don't cause much impact with my camps. I got up and made coffee each day by 4:30 AM so I had time to sit and watch this tail out while the day came alive. Each morning a beaver or two were finishing up the night shift work and cruising back and forth across the big bend. I don't do campfires. I have been using an MSR Wisperlight backpacker stove since 1981 and I keep it as undisturbed as possible, after I leave you need a keen eye to even know I was there.

Great shots Ard. I too have been using a Whisperlite for about the same length of time and never have a fire when I'm in the back country. I used to have a North Face VE-25 tent too but I sold it and got a Black Diamond Megamid to save some weight. Here's a shot of the Megamid on top of Mt. Elbert in February.

Woke up this morning with time to kill, since I have to wait for the plumber to get here to replace my dead water heater. But, as they say, that’s another story.

I walked around the front yard checking my various flower beds to see what’s blooming and budding and getting an idea of how much longer it will be before color starts to really take off and brighten up the yard.

Most of the flowers are another week or more away from blooming, but a few Columbines, Blue Flax and Lupine are blooming and last night the first of the Poppies bloomed. There was barely any wind this morning, which in and of itself is a rare blessing, and the light was pretty nice, so I got out the camera and went to town on the new born poppies.

Before bursting into orange flames, poppies start out as bug eye looking, hairy buds.

The rest of the garden is off to a slow start but the bed under the little Aspen tree can always be depended upon to show the first blooms of Spring.

Nice ride Mike!

As you can see I'm old school, this is my 1983 / 84 Fuji Sundance. Still running on original wheel bearings but I've had to replace rear cog, dérailleur, crank bearings, and cables along with handle bars. Have worn out three cycle speedos and near as I can tell it has over 5000 miles on it. Back when I got this there were no suspension bikes and we did single track, downhill, the works on these hard frames. The thing is sledgehammer proof. I have another that I got in 1996 made by Trek. it's one of their Y frames and by 2000 that's all that was still Trek (the frame) you know how you can dump money in them............... Made a half decent Dh out of it but by 2002 I was starting to feel the endos a lot more so I sort of gave it to my brother in law. He is older than I am but when he takes a spin around town on his tricked out bike he's like a rock star to the kids who spot him

I use this for fishing small creeks here when I can find a single track along them.
