A reason for every season
This past weekend we spent the weekend in The Wind River Range at Long Lake. We fly fished and bushwhacked our way around. It was perfect weather to be there, no rain, just sunshine and 70’s degrees. As the seasons are changing the colors are so vibrant with red, orange and yellow. I love the fall season, it signifies change and new directions.
I am somewhat sad to say bye-bye to summer in Jackson, but I am glad that the mosquitoes are dead and gone (they love me, I hate them).
I can’t stress enough how gorgeous it is here to see the leaves change and enjoy hiking among the colors. Since it’s hunting season, we had to put a bright orange bandana on Sadie to hopefully insure her not to be mistaken for an elk or deer (she is a brown dog). We found a moose paddle shed on the creek beds. It was a little heavy but I hauled that antler all the way home and hopefully figure out how we will use it.
There is something about The Winds that I find so beautiful and free. It’s so vast and the terrain is so fun. I realized that I usually only make it out there once or twice a year, typically in the summer or fall. In the past few years we’ve been lucky to make it out to The Winds with our friends Jesse and Aiden - the best and most patient fly fishing instructors not to mention they bring double-stuffed oreos on camping trips!
After our very long hiking day around Long Lake, Upper Long Lake and back up to hill to the car, we all chatted about what we were going to order at Wind River Brewing. Everyone got something well deserved. I had the best brew ever, that I am hoping to get my paws on again soon: Mongo Mango Wheat. I already looked locally at some of the liquor stores and I’ve come up dry.. but I am hopeful.
Cheers to Fall! Soon we will be going to a pumpkin patch and making our Halloween costumes, this year I think Mike and I may be a ‘Sadie’ dog! :)
