Visited the ortho on Monday. He said the arm was healing well and I should be able to resume most normal activity within a month; I take that to mean “do what you want” so it’s time to see how the limb is going to hold up handling the wading stick.

Hard to believe we had a nasty thunderstorm just a few hours ago (it’s twin will shut me down later in the day)

I’ll wait a few more weeks ‘till the 2020’s come out and see if they’re willing to deal to move stock sitting on the lot

Image


Signs say the road is closed 10 miles up, which is where things get interesting, so I spend a little time on the lower section before heading to option B.

Nothing big down here but the natives are looking up

Image


I have no idea what it’s called but it worked

Image


Head back down the road to another blue line; flows are still good (it’s been a fairly wet, cool summer here so far) but it’s easy enough to get from one side to the other, when necessary.

Image


A hard rejection on foam so I switch to an ungulate thing and take one still in spawning colors

Image

Image


A few more good holes

Image

Image

Image


And a few more cutts

Image


But the light’s gone off the water, temps drop and thunder starts booming. Since I don’t want them to find my body in a logjam with 9’ of graphite fused to my arm, I beat a hasty retreat. I wait out the worst of it in the truck; by the time I get back it looks like someone needs to find the snow shovel

Image

I’d do it but I’ve got this broken arm...

Man, I love that type of water. It’s going to be good for you through Autumn. Makes me excited to gtfo of the desert and head north.

Nice. Tight waters with fast narrow runs filled with logs and Bows, and Cutties sitting up against the banks. I love it!
BTW, it looks like those snocats won't be dropping in price anytime soon. Just sayin.

Nice cutts and I would take that snow!

Headed that way in a couple days. Family has been saying how nice of a summer it's been so far. Welcome news, after so many back to back years of rough fire seasons.

So far, so good. Our daughter came out in early July this year, after being shut out of Glacier the past 2 years because of smoke and fire. Got some good hikes in (in the rain) and even managed to score a mid-day parking spot at Logan Pass; got there in the middle of a nasty hail storm which kept the crowds away.
Enjoy your trip.
