Summer is our favorite time of year for exploring mountain lakes and rivers. We like to find places away from the crowds in hard to reach places to reflect on life, decompress, and simplify.

This usually entails a bivy, water, bug srpay, sunscreen, freeze-dired food, coffee, fly rod, an inflateable SUP, and three peice paddle. Getting there can be challenging, but the rewards are big.

Breakfast is over. Time to paddle and find some fish.
