High Country Ride, Camp and Fish

I’d recently setup my sister’s Kawasaki Sherpa with a new luggage system so with the weekend’s weather forecast looking fairly tidy, it was a perfect opportunity to go for a debut run.

Overnight it dropped well below zero and didn't even begin warming up until about 8 a.m. A quick morning flick before packing up camp and setting off home

Stopping for a quick bite to eat and watching big browns swinging and feeding. This section of the river is closed until opening season, it's almost as though this trout knew that and was taunting us!
