As I said yesterday, I came back to the stream with snow shoes today. Even with snow shoes, it was hard going as the snow was wet and heavy. It took about an hour and a half to go 1.5 miles to the head of the stream. The snow melt hasn't been enough to bring the water level up, and the big trout to the head of the stream. Although it would be bad for the major rivers, I need a good rain to fast melt the snow and bring the water level up. When that happens, the big trout will head to the headwaters, and I'll be there. It was an exhausting trip, but the valley was beautiful in all it's winter glory. I am truly blessed to be able to enjoy God's bounty!
Mar 10th, 2010: I took my first trip to my valley today. The temp was about 45 degrees F, and it seemed a great day to hit the stream. When I arrived, I found snow up to my knees, and no trail broke. I couldn't get to the stream without totally exhausting myself, so I turned around and went back home. I will soon head back, only this time with snow shoes.
