This past week found me out and about the Upper Rio Grande partaking in some phenomenal trout fishing.Read More
My dad at the age of 83 just purchased his first UTV. A Kawasaki TRex 4 seater. Its awesome. He is a very good driver and I think having foot pedals for gas and brakes and steering wheel is helping him as its just like a jeep or truck or car.Read More
Yesterday was a great day here in the Colorado Rockies. We took a short ATV ride as my 83 year old father had just purchased his FIRST UTV. A 4 passenger Kawasaki TREX. This looks to be a very good machine with solid doors and top and windshield. He did fine and we crossed a fast flowing stream with no problems other than I hit the kill switch on my machine right in the middle. Finally figured out what I had done and off we went again.Read More
Looks like my friends are getting hammered out there with the latest snowstorm. Its a godsend to the ski industry and also the farmers and wildlife for the resulting runoff that will occur next spring. This will make the fishing good, sustain the streams and renew many of the lakes there.Read More
I have had the pleasure to be able to talk to a long time valley resident about the early days of logging in the San Luis Valley. I call him Big John and until I get his permission to share more, I will leave it at that but most of you probably can guess who that is from the name.Read More
Its that time of year again when I hit the road to see the kids and find some fishing adventures somewhere farther south. I am living full time in my RV now and looking for a new one that is 4 seasons. When I began this adventure, I didn't think I would be living full time in an RV but alas, here I am now.Read More
This week marks the beginning of the Big Game seasons in Colorado and there is already a buzz in the air over the influx of hunters to the area. These hunters -- whether local or out-of-state -- bring in much needed revenue to the San Luis Valley. Although the first bow season opens this Friday, last week saw hunters arriving in preparation for their hunts.Read More
Once again we get to tag along with Dennis as he leads a hike.
Wayne led us up the WET Tewksberry trail for 2 1/2 miles to the Chute where we had our lunch. So many flowers and fungi like never seen before at this time of year and all because of the bountiful rainfall we have received!!
What a pleasure to enjoy the great outdoors with a great bunch of folks to enjoy it with. We welcomed a couple of new folks, Connie and Tony from Kansas, they did very well for the first time out with us, hope to see them again soon.....
Wayne is leading the group tomorrow to the top of San Luis peak, the first 14'er of the year for the group. We need to leave South Fork at 5 AM to make the trek and hopefully avoid the rain and lightning..............
We WILL hike to the top of Fox mtn on Thursday, if we happen to trip over some mushrooms we will collect them....meet at the VCPL at 9 AM, bring your lunch, water, raingear and a friend....

I have had to make some modifications to the way I hunt since being injured. This year I purchased a Barnett Quad 400 crossbow and hopefully can find an elk close enough to the road to get a shot.Read More
