Re: Late summer alpine fun, Bighorn Mountains, Wyoming

Helis wouldn't be able to land up there (legally at least) as it is wilderness area.

Milt Spawn- yeah, I know, but I hate spooling off the bottom. I also hate snagging my line on every tree branch...

Late summer alpine fun, Bighorn Mountains, Wyoming
