Last fall I thought I would post some pics from last summer in Colorado. Never got around to it. Then, I thought on a cold miserable winter day I would post some pics from last summer in Colorado. Never did it. Here we are in full-blown spring, the sandies are thick in the creeks and what am I doing?..........posting pics from last summer in Colorado. Some of the pictures are pretty. And some are interesting. I like looking at them so I thought I would go ahead and post them and hope that you like looking at them too.

The main attraction for the summer was water. Lots of it. Heavy spring snows left a deep snow pack that fed the creeks and rivers until well into August. Here's a pic of the Roaring Fork river taken August 2nd. The flow was 1,400 cfs. That's a lot of water for August 2nd.

But even with the high water, the fishing during the month of August was great!

Lot's of fish and lots of fun!

Here's a picture of a pretty stand of Aspen trees I drive through on the road that accesses several of the lakes I fish. In the fall they turn a beautiful gold and orange.

Well, not any more because along with lots of snow, you get avalanches. Those beautiful trees stand no more.

I will miss those trees.

And, of course, some lake fishing. Again, these first couple of shots were early August. It's rare to find ice on these lakes that late in the summer.

But as the summer progressed, things went back to normal and we had some great lake fishing.

And then, there were the bears. Lots of bears

All of the bear shots were from around the house. I did have two close encounters in the wild but I was too busy backing away to pull out my camera.

I've got a couple of videos I might add......if I can figure out how to do it.

Man those are some pretty fish. Love them cutties. The wildlife shots were cool my pointer Heidi misses the ptarmigan and they are tasty bird on the table.

Last year was a pretty rough one for run off I was still living up there over last winter and most drainages entered the runoff season with well above 150% snow pack. Looks to the same this year after talking with a few of my buddies still up there.

All the ice on those lakes that time of year is caused by global warming. roflmao

Awesome- looks like a great time.

How are you fishing that big water in those first pictures? I'm always confused in those situations.
