a few pictures of my brother, ross, and his son, corbin. i thought corbie looked cute.
w showing off the cuts/stitches and black eye he got from having a scooter accident. we took him into the er, and he got three stitches. given that he had blood all over his head, and he said that his shoulder hurt, we felt very grateful that it wasn't worse.
ok, now here is our trip down south. we went down with our friend emron and his son moses to torrey and the boulder mountain.
we drove about a mile down the road to hit our favorite burger place--slacker's. we got there just before it was closing. w found some kiddie playland-type toys.
after dinner, we headed over to the flue shop motel and stayed in the same big, family-size room. before we went to bed, though, we bought a few treasures at the shop. w used his money to buy a beautiful fox skin, look at that tail!
at the flute shop, moses got a arrowhead tied to a piece of wood. moses liked wearing this around his neck.
we went to a big lake to start off with. we had heard the fishing was fast. sadly, it didn't end up that way.
w caught a nice trout right in the planty area off the shore. when he cast it out, i thought "oh man, he's not going to get anything there. we'll only end up losing a lure." i guess you just never know.
it was a little reminiscent of our crow trip in 2012. the scenery looked about the same, but we weren't carrying 30 pound packs!
i was hopeful we'd have another great fishing day (like b and i had had the weekend before), but it was a long, almost entirely fishless day. i did see a garter snake that b picked up, and w liked to play with.
although we didn't catch many fish (emron did manage to catch a teeny-tiny one), we did make it off the mountain in time to eat at slacker's again! moses was so keen on eating there that it's good we made it out in time.
we did have a lot of fun together even though we didn't catch any of those huge trout trolling around in the clear, clear water.
