A rough six months

I think the Winter of 2018 broke me. It's been the promise of Spring only to be fooled into a false sense of readiness. As I look forward to this week's trip to Rocky Mountain National Park I'm prepared for almost anything...including snow one day and sunny days the next.

I'll enjoy myself  if for nothing more than a few days with the wife, some of the most beautiful scenery in Colorado and the chance to challenge a few trout on the Big Thompson River as it flows past the back door.

I need a big dose of sunshine to counter the deep well that I have fallen into. We'll see.

My buddy Mark and I have started talking about bucket lists a lot lately. As the years have been flying by it has seemed more important than ever to start checking the lists and making those dreams come true. And true to his word, Mark has started to knock them off the list one at a time.

Mark recently returned from a trip to the San Juan River below Navajo Dam, which was number one on his list. He kindly shared some of his reward for following though on his list.






Meanwhile, number one on my list is to get out of bed tomorrow.
