In Yellowstone National Park, we hike along the Lamar River trail, where the pronghorn and the bison play. Or snooze,
or roll in the dust, as the case may be.
Our destination is Cache Creek.
The views along the way are unbeatable,
with the wildflowers in full bloom.
Back on the Lamar, Steve catches quite a few cutthroat trout.
He claims to have caught about 20 trout on one grasshopper imitation fly, the middle one in the group above. It does look a little worse for wear, compared to the new ones.
Steve and a couple of fisherman share trade secrets on the river.
I took the photo of them from the road, where I waited for Steve to return. As I sat there, a bear jam formed, with scopes pointed at the terrace directly above the fishermen. A couple of grizzly rolled in the grass and lazed around, unaware of the fishermen, who were also unaware of them, a good situation for all.
