Thanks for the lovely interlude in the high mountains. The Lahontan cutthroat is an impressive survivor of the old Pleistocene lakes. Good to see they are still hanging in there. 

 

Happy to see the Lady is happy and mobile with the new knee.

 

Thanks for sharing your adventure!

 

Tony

It was a lovely interlude, what a nice way to put it. Thanks for the kind comment Tony! :)

Great photos of the natives.   And kudos to your restraint not to harass them when the conditions are tough.  So many of our lakes and streams are extremely low.  

 

I'll chime in and cheer Julie on, as a fellow knee surgery survivor!   She's looking good on the off trail routes you folks tend to favor.

 

Thinking of you guys with the Caldor fire breathing down your necks.  Hope they get that under control soon.  

These smokey days are really depressing.

Lighthawk, thanks!

 

As I'm sitting on my butt fielding incoming messages about fire status, I'm working on my photos from the short trip we returned from just in time to evacuate. They'll also illustrate how well Julie is doing. She has worked so hard. Her physical therapist told her Wednesday she has the best results he's seen in his many years of practice. "Hard work pays off."

 

Round two, the left knee total replacement is next Friday. We are going ahead with it no matter what happens with our home and the fire.

Love the trip. So good to get out there and explore... I love trout. I saw the documentary on these fine natives and though hopeful ...just another sad tale of human exploitation. Those were beautiful spots on the stream and so nice to be there mostly alone.... Weird how we have too much water where I live and other parts need more. Hurricane Henri is still hovering over us.... we had 14" rain in August and then this storm with 3.5" in 2 days... we are sponge.  My wife retired last month so when we are able to head out in the FWC ...here we come ...with soft footprints and a big trash bag. Thanks for the trip report as always.

Rob
