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!
