Now I'm not exactly complaining, but...

Who else plans a three day fishing trip to Rocky Mountain National Park at the end of May?  I must have lost my mind.  As if the possibility of runoff wasn't enough, it's almost a sure bet that there is going to be snow in the mountains in May. The last report I heard before committing hari cari was there was 21 inches of new snow with at least another foot expected.

If I was already up there I certainly wouldn't complain about being snowed in even if there wasn't any fishing.  Unfortunately, we don't leave until Sunday and it looks like a good chance that the roads we need to drive might be closed.  This means I may spend a nice cozy 12 days off at home, alone in my den talking to flies and fish pictures and the occasional dog that wanders in.  And I was so looking forward to, like, posting a real live fishing report. Color me blue or better yet, grey like the sky above my head.
