  3. Ben, Erin- thanks guys! That is indeed the high country fish of the year, on my last trip of the season no less.

    Sanders- you're telling me! That forced perspective is an old architect's trick ya know, he's really but a minnow ;-)

    I'm sure you all can appreciate, I had to sit down a bit after landing, let the adrenaline shakes subside. Awesome. mike
