I escaped the heat for awhile..

Took a few days off from everything. I’m back after a wonderful flyfishing trip in the Colorado mountains and then down to San Juan River in New Mexico for a few days. My soul desperately needed some green grass to look at since it looks more and more like a desert here with no rain for months. Just what the doctor ordered. I noticed on the drive up once we hit Chama the countryside got lush and green with all that grass and stayed green all through Colorado. We went up to Williams Creek Reservoir, CO outside Pagosa Springs to float tube. Ahh, nice and cool and caught and released many fish-Brookies, Rainbows, Cutthroats, Cuttbows, and Kokanee Salmon. Wonderful time until we heard 50 mph winds and snow and rain were forecasted for Sunday night with temperatures in the 20’s°F. Too cold for me so then we went down to my favorite fly fishing spot, the San Juan River right here in New Mexico. Back to drier climate again but the temperature was balmy: 75°F in the day with temps dropping into the mid-40’s°F at night-delightful! Also caught many fish there and got some dry fly fishing in too. Here are a few pictures.

    Jannine, Williams Creek is where Tom and I camped every Memorial Weekend for several years with a couple of other families – very beautiful place, wonderful hiking and fishing. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Janet
