Took a hike today with Heinz and one of his friends, into a canyon I had never visited. It's not that far from my home base, but I didn't even know it was there - thank you Heinz!
Perhaps you can see the trees sprouting from the massive granite slabs that edge the river.
Every pool free of ice fairly cried out to me - this is fine fishing water -
have to come back in the summer with my flyrod!
Despite snow, ice and mud, it was actually a lovely day, and though the mountains are fairly overrun with hikers and mountain bikers, we were alone after the first mile.
