I knew before we went that we were going to be there on the anniversary of my wedding to Larry. I also knew that in the past that has been a hard day for me... Just full of bad memories that make me want to curl up in a ball in my closet and disappear for a day (or more)... I hoped that camping and fishing in one of my favorite places would make it easier, but I didn't know.
The trip was AWESOME.
So relaxed. So chill. So much fun. And I completely forgot what day it was, and that THAT day is usually hard for me. Of course, the fishing was non-stop. I lost count of how many fish I caught, but BJ and I figured we each caught at least 100 fish that day.
|Home sweet home - at least for the weekend.
|The view from our tent.
|I don't know what this is... but it's kinda cool, right?
|There are so many little springs that feed the lake. That's a tree root that is catching the water.
|SO MANY BUGS! But I couldn't really see them until I used the flash. I quit fishing when I couldn't see my fly on the water anymore, but that didn't stop BJ.
|I was super excited to catch an albino trout.
|Then BJ caught one, and he was super excited about his. (They are just weird looking!)
|Then I caught another one, and wanted my picture taken with him.
|Not sure what this face is about... but here you go.
|I am "Catch and Release" only. This guy just got released a few seconds earlier than I was planning.
|Using my new camera to take pictures of the moon... It didn't work so good at first.
|This one would be awesome, but when viewed at it's full size, you can see it isn't quite in focus... I'm getting better though!
