My Last Day in the Driftless   5 comments

I took the morning to ride out to Grant County to a spot I’ve been scoping out. It’s a large stretch of river not crossed by roads, running through a deep valley in the Driftless. It looked very promising on all of my favorite mapping resources like Bing.com/maps, maps.google.com, Google Earth, the Wisconsin DNR Managed Lands website, and the USGS Digital Download Topo Maps website. But seeing a section of a river on a map or via satellite image is not the same as being there.

So I went. When I arrived, I was very pleased. I spent the morning, did a bit of exploring, caught some fish, then had to head back east to do some work. Next time I’ll hope to spend the day, but for now, it was a great way to end the 2012 Inland Trout season, and it will feed my dreams for the next four months.

Hope you enjoy the photographs.
