There is a trail up the canyon that is used by the local outfitters and their horses. Many guys are heading up to Elk and bear hunt. This bridge is about 1/4 of a mile from the trail head.
Kim and I decided to take a walk up the trail the other evening. We went up about a mile and a half. I brought my fly rod and tried some fishing. I decided I would try to catch our dinner. I had some good luck:
And a large Brook Trout to go with it.
I fixed them for dinner and they were very good. I normally catch and release, but after paying $66 for a fishing license, I did not feel bad keeping these two.
Then on the way back to camp, we saw a bear! We watched him for about 10 minutes. He was just gorging himself on berries on the far hillside. This is the best picture we could get of him:
We are having a great time, but it is time to move on. We are not sure where we will go next, but we are still waiting for those aspen's to turn.
