Fishing & Hiking Grand Mesa 7/4/2016

"Wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread." 
Edward Abbey

Joann and I took off for Grand Mesa on this Independence Day.  We hiked up to a lake off the beaten path.  It appeared to be dead, except for the abundance of water dogs.  So, we left and tried a few other lakes.  The fishing was definitely not good - the only thing biting were the mosquitoes.  We fed them well.  The day ended with a heavy hail storm that turned everything white.  Unfortunately, I was trying to stay on the muddy road so I only got one shot out the windshield.  Any day in God's mountains is a good day regardless of bugs and snooty fish.
