<()))>< Yup! Got Her off the Golf Course. :)

As addicted to golf as my wife is I finally got her to lay down the clubs and join me for a round of trout fishing. Yea, sure, she loves trout fishing too, but she has become locked into golf as well over the past few years. Anyway, I digress. We got out yesterday and as usual she put the iron to a few beauties and put me in a spot of bother as well. Though I did my best to stay with her I played ghillie much of the day. I had to as she kept lacing into those trout at an awesome rate. Or let's say she lowered her fly-fishing handicap. :) Check it out!

I've played a lot of beautiful golf courses in my day and that one beats all of them. Also, playing at altitude is kind of weird anyhow!

I understand the thought. But see, I think playing golf at sea level is weird. The ball won't go nearly as far. :) Playing golf at 6,000 feet makes me think I could make the seniors tour. :)

We used to vacation in Midway, Utah, and I'd play a course there that made me feel superhuman! Still gotta make those putts, however. ;)

That’s a beautiful stretch of freestone stream! Also beautiful fish - what strain of cutthroat?

West Slope to the best of my knowledge. it was tough to tell on a few as there were a number of Cutbows around as well.
