Great place.

It's been almost 40 years since I was there.

It doesn't look like it's changed. That's a good thing.

At least 30 (40?) since I was last there. Heavy back pack and my first Yellow Lab; Sheba had his own pack with dog food in the pouches. Hike up/down river, sleep on the beach (didn't need to set up the tent-good weather) and a beach fire for the one pan dinner. MRI's sort of things, just add water. "Sumores" were a great desert. Dog got his share, but without Choc. Cookie with a melted Marshmellow was his treat.

Cuddle with Doggie on my sleep mat and off to La-La land for hours.
mcnerney and rockriver like this.

Awesome! The Bob is a place I've been wanting to get into for many years now. So jealous. Great looking cutts you got there.

The Bob is rumored to have lots of pack trains and outfitters. How was the condition of the trail? Osthoff says in his book that sometimes the pack trains can really mess up that trail. Horse packers are really known for screwing up the trails and campsites all over the Rockies. They've devastated a lot of trails and nice areas in the Winds and the Flat Tops.

This time of the year the pack trains are pretty much coming to an end. I have heard in the peak of summer the fishing/traffic pressure can be quite heavy.
