Backcountry Brookies

        Theres not much else better in life than hiking to a place where you are only present for a few moments.  Lucky enough to spend a few hours chasing fish that very seldom see flies. Life above 11,000 feet above sea level is not a place for humans to live and flourish. It is a delicate yet tough environment. The "summer" season is so short and sweet that its only a matter of time before the rains turn to snow and the ice eventually settles in for another winter in the Rocky Mountain High country.
        The family and I got out a few weeks ago to one of seems like endless high mountain lakes in Colorado. These lakes are probably my favorite thing to fish. Sure its not monster fish pushing the scale toward my toddlers weight but the eager brook trout, lake trout, and splake make for a very entertaining day on the water. Heres some pictures from our adventure hope if you ever get a chance to come out to Colorado you'll try the high mountain lakes around the state. If you time it just right you will be rewarded with lots of wildflowers.
