This was such a busy summer, I didn’t get a chance to get out of town the entire time. So a week ago, I did break away for four days of fishing in Yellowstone National Park.
It is one of my favorite places in the world, and although the fish didn’t cooperate all that much, I had a marvelous time being in the wilderness.
Ken Burn’s series on the National Parks is on PBS right now, and is not to be missed. These park are truly the unspoiled artistry of God, as the Lord designed the world to be.
Below is a picture from my trip. I was fishing where a large herd of buffalo came up behind me (no, those are not cows). Since so many people stopped to take picture of the buffalo, I had them get one for me too. This was on the Firehole River, where the water is warm from the geysers all along the river’s edge. It is a great river for fishing late in the day because the water is 20 degrees warmer than the other rivers.
