Mesa Verde Colorado was my destination as I left Austin, TX Saturday, April 5. It was easy going on day one, with a nice tailwind and gentle rolling vistas. I hit New Mexico in the late afternoon, and headed northwest from there.
I spent the night at Santa Rosa Lake State Park, a beautiful stop in central NM.
Sunday was a much different day, with steep climbs and hefty headwinds! The Vibe was not happy! I finally topped out at 7300′ and spent another 3 hours at high elevations, slowly making my way to Bloomfield, and the San Juan River.
After dropping off the Towee, I hit the lower San Juan for some trout fishing. I wasn’t really prepared for nymphing, so my “A” game wasn’t there. I did catch a small trout on a drowned dry fly, and then a few more on nymphs, including this one.
Stay tuned for more, and thanks for participating! Tight lines!
