3/5 happy

went fishing today with Dr. K and adam at the cebolla creek. first cast, and i caught a brown trout. things are going well. we fished for 6 hours or so. i was feeling pretty good, two brown trout and a rainbow. none were over 10 inches, but i was pretty psyched. adam caught 3 fish too, and we were feeling pretty good. til Dr. k told us he caught 13 fish.

we came back to town, met up with the girls who had spent all day at telluride. had a nice mexican dinner, two pitchers of margaritas. The Killians and the girls had enough, so they went home. Adam and I stayed in town, looking for some local culture. we walked around for a bit, then decided to stroll down an alley above the river behind the local bar. as we walked down, the bar patrons started yelling "bear! bear!"

sure enough, a black bear, 3 1/2 feet tall on all 4's, 6 feet tall standing was 20 feet from us. i tried to take a picture with the cell phone. no dice. anyway, that was awesome. so, i've caught trout, seen a bear (which is so unreal) seen a fox. now i just need the yeti and the beaver. i'm 3 for 5. which is well above the mendoza line. some pics for you enjoyment are below.

    CrackBass, when you see a bear, it's usually best to just move away as quickly as you can without upsetting the animal. Stopping to take pictures is probably a good way to end up with a bear mandible around your skull.

    Naw, bears love having their pictures taken. Also, they love it when you pet them behind the ears.

    If you see a yeti, do NOT attempt to take a photograph.
    They are notoriously unfriendly to paparazzi (lawsuits, exsanguination, urination ...)

    You have been so warned.
