An interesting article in the Telegram today entitled "Last Ferry to Big Noise." by Liam Dougherty.

I have been following the demise of this tiny community for a while. The only comments I can make is that I'm glad I didn't live there. I just don't know how I would react if it was my community.

A few from yesterday's ATV Ride on the Table Mountains.

  The Partridge remains still and has 4-5 young near by.
My Brother enjoying the view of the Valley below. My Granddaughter and I went fishing down their this past Saturday.
A minor problem. In a few places we had to use the Wrench.

My Brother taking a few pics. Note the Pyramid shape Mountains a few miles in the distance.

Great looking Valley and the little Stream has many Brook Trout.

Another Morning of Fishing.

I sat and watched her catch a dozen Trout yesterday and each one she hauled in gave her the same excitement as the first one she landed a few weeks back. It was quite an enjoyable morning and next year I'll teach her to Fly Fish.
A few pics and small Video here of yesterdays little excursion.

A great Hike yesterday to a place I call Big Meadows in the Wreckhouse area. Granddaughter has been asking to go Fishing for sometime, so we purchased her a Fishing Rod of her own. The Hike must of took us close to two hours to reach the stream in the big valley. After a quick lesson on how to use the Spincast Rod she soon started landing her first Trout. Her squeals of delight echoed all through that valley. We kept a dozen of the Trout to fry up later on today and she must of caught and released Dozens more. Big Meadows is a Glacier carved valley with tall grass and a meandering stream blocked in one place by a Beaver dam. The sides of the mountains have Peridotite Rocks that have fallen all the way to the Valley floor and into the stream in places. The winds can blow down through this valley in excess of 200 KPH at times. Yesterday just a gentle breeze,just enough to keep the Flies away. Perfect!
