If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere...
Daniel finding his way through Rock Garden on the Tuolumne River. Just took four rad dudes from Hong Kong down the river over the past three days, and we might be the first raft with all Chinese people to make it through the Tuolumne... and that’s pretty sweet :) 🇨🇳
Manny and his son Elias dropped the hammer on a couple of these dime bright Sacramento River fall run chinooks this morning! We were back to the launch with our fish by 10 o’clock. It was a good morning to say the least! The fish are here folks and it’s only going to get better over the next few weeks. Give me a call! Spots in September are filling quick. #theotherredmeat#salmon#salmonfishing#sacramentoriver#kings#kingsalmon#eggeater#guidelife
My Montana bear from 2013. 430 pounds and 23 years old. We hunted with one guide for 2 days that drove us around and told story’s about his kids. We literally never left the vehicle unless we stopped at a gas station or to take a leak. It was miserable. At the end of day 2 we had decided to go back home to Kansas. 2 guides in camp (Josh and Stitch) caught wind that we were leaving in the morning. Their clients had either tagged out or died. (that’s a different story) They offered to guide us for the next 3 days instead of taking the time off of work. Day 3 was to foggy to hunt, but we hiked old logging roads and looked at bear and wolf scat and tracks. They even took us to a mountain lion cash with a once pregnant elk in it. Day 4 Josh and I sat right on the Idaho and Montana Border and glassed the valley across the way. Not seeing anything all day; we headed back towards the truck with an hour of daylight left. Heading back down the mountain in the Jeep Josh spotted a large chocolate phase bear on a logging road 400 yards across the canyon. I ranged it while he set my scope. The bear dropped right where I shot him. The following day we met with a biologist that aged the bear while my buddy Jeremy hunted. The bear sits in my dining room now as a full body mount. But what I really took away from this trip is a little better understand or what it takes to be a good guide. I got to experience a crappy guide and 2 good guides all in the same trip. Josh and Stitch definitely have had an influence on why I decided to become a guide.
I post a pic of me and the bear because that’s all I have, but what I remember most is sitting around a fire with a Josh, Stitch and Jeremy right after the kill. 🐻 🐻
This is the view from the ski field, Temple Basin. To get to the lodge, lifts, and skiing, there is a 400m vertical hike up, which certainly keeps the tourists away. What was amazing, was that we saw a band, The Easton, play here and the band also hiked up the mountain. ............................................................... Skiing in NZ is much different than what I am used to in the States. In NZ there are no trees to maneuver around and you only ski the top half of the mountain. There is a lot more exposed rock and cliff faces, creating chute skiing. I'm stoked to get a few more turns in this season. 🏔#leave4wallsbehind
