Tree Wisperer and Sheep Herder, but sorry to say no Trout!

We are back from Michigan after a great visit with the parent-in-laws.  I thought I would try my luck fly fishing the Big Thompson River and see how much she has changed in two weeks.  Although she is a bit more stained it appeared that wading would be easy.
I must have been really rusty from all that jigging and bobber fishing at Lake Mac because within an hour I had lost 3 flies to the trees.

Pixie was along as she had just spent almost 2 weeks at the kennel.
I think she was just happy to out running around sniffing things!

I did manage to run into a large herd of bighorn sheep. All in all there were
13 males hanging by the side of the road either licking the road or eating green grass. Pretty impressive.
