Spring, Hiking, Sore Knees and Pleasure.
Sore knees to the max. Spring of 2020 seems to a bit worse on the joints for some reason but I'll not bother you with that. I have over the past week been on the lookout for my favorite spring flower. Trillium has had a wonderful effect on me for many years and to describe the feeling is something I can't do, I'm not the best when it comes to selecting the right words. I have been lucky to find trillium along a few streams, in various stages of bloom. My feelings are this weekend should be a great few days to see it in full bloom.
When you look at this free flowing freestone stream you can see how my knees could have a problem at the end of the day...well worth the pain for sure. It seemed that every pocket held a brookie. One of them was a wee 3", but was determined to grab that size 12 fly.
A few of the brookies were more substantial.
I love seeing wood stacked up like this on a stream. The benefits are tremendous for the brook trout.
Those little plunge pools are a favorite of both brookie and me.
Polenta...corn meal and tomato sauce. So simple and so good.
