Fishing trip

 

Memorial Day weekend, 2001, I left Seattle.  I flew to Peoria, IL where I met up with my Father, Grandfater, and Uncle (John) for a fishing trip.  We headed up to a lake north of Vermilion Bay, Ontario, Canada.

There's an eagle in these pictures.  Can you find it?

That's me.  2 Northern and a Bass, I think.

We went for a hike this hot day.  We spotted a Moose and calf along the old road.

Some thoughtless beavers built this dam without first approving the environmental impact statement.  They didn't even build a fish ladder!

That's me, holding a Northern Pike.
