A Very Happy Fisherman

Well, our time here in Island Park, Idaho (about 25 miles west of Yellowstone Park) is about over. But, as time goes quickly by, there's still time for fishing. And there was a very happy fisherman last night.

He fished the Firehole River in Yellowstone and caught some really pretty trout (don't worry, he released them safe and sound). It was possibly the best fishing he's had since our day long trip a few days ago. As for Hitch, he's not a fisherman and I'm finding these mosquitoes are just too much for a GIRL!!




But, he wasn't alone. Take a look at the GIRL who decided to visit him while he was fishing. In fact, took a drink of water out of the river just below him. Quite awesome. Then she came by the car so I could get a photo opp. If you blow up the photo and look over her, toward the downed tree to the left, you can just barely see the top of the fisherman's hat. Unreal!!

Everyone have a safe and fun Fourth!

Goodnight for now,
Traveling with Hitch

But where are the fish? Yellowstone is an awesome
place. The animals, the landscape, the dry atmosphere, everything. Glad you guys are having a good time. Ash is camping in a tent this weekend!?! Wouldn't you like to be an ant in camp to see how its going with her!?!?!
