Hiking Boot Review – Merrell Moab Mid Waterproof

Winter Fishing – Clear Creek
Clear Creek must really have it out for me. I just can’t catch a break at this place. I’ve now been to Clear Creek three times and every time I’ve dealt with inclement weather. Twice I’ve had to deal with 20+ mph winds and most recently bitter, bitter cold.
Bright Angel Trail – Grand Canyon National Park
It is widely known that Andre and I are the best road trip buddies ever. Our 2012 trip that included the Grand Canyon was the road trip to define all future road trips. We left LA, spent a night in Vegas threatening our parents that we’d get married, hit up the Grand Canyon and then spent the majority of our days in and around Telluride, Colorado, (where we learned to fly fish!!) But the hike down into the Grand Canyon was definitely one of the most memorable hikes I have ever been on, and not for all the obvious reasons you’re thinking of, like the views. Because duh, it was amazing. It’s the Grand Canyon. Of course it was breathtaking. But you know what else is breathtaking? Hiking 9 miles in 110 degree heat. But let’s back up a bit.
Kern River – Sequoia National Forest: Part 2
I fly fish for two reasons: 1. I love to fish and 2. I love the peaceful solitude it can bring. The latter of these two reasons is why I love the headwaters of the Kern River so much. Everything upstream of the Johnsondale Bridge is only accessible by foot (click here for directions). This keeps a lot of people out of the area and leaves you with plenty of solitude and lots of fish to catch.
