Greetings from Mammoth Hot Springs,
The last 5 days have been nothing short of amazing. After exiting the north inlet backcountry we completed a day of service working with the trails crew in Rocky Mountain National Park. Our service project consisted of repairing a section of trail near the scenic Bierstadt Lake. We were tearing up old trail to significantly improve drainage through the trail section in order to prevent unwanted erosion. I am proud to report that the guys put in a solid day of hard work without complaints.
Greeting from Massachusetts,
Hello from the Rangeley Lakes Region,
We have arrived at one of the highlights of the trip: Lakewood Camps. We will be staying in rustic cabins here on the grounds for two nights on the headwaters of the Rapid River, home to some of the largest wild Brook Trout in the Lower 48. The weather appears that it is going to hold up for the two days that we are here, and the rocks near the river are crawling with golden stoneflies. We should be in store for some amazing fishing.
Greetings from Indian Pond,
Our group of talented young anglers and us guides made it safely to Maine on Saturday after a quick pitstop for pizza on our way up. After setting up our tents, we finished off the night by getting to know each other with some frisbee at a local campground in Greenville.
Greetings from the Road—
Howdy from the Maine Woods,
It is hard to believe that our Maine Adventure is rounding the halfway mark. We have had some good fishing despite some tough conditions.
Greetings from North Carolina,
We are back from a successful trip to the West Fork of the Pigeon! Everyone caught plenty of fish, and more importantly honed their fishing skills. We landed every possible species of trout in the river including brook, rainbow, and brown. We had a beautiful primitive campsite alongside the river which made for peaceful mornings and evenings.

It is hard to believe that I am sitting in a comfy leather chair in the Jackson Library writing my final trip update of the summer. It feels like yesterday that I was in North Carolina gearing up for the first trip of the summer. With all of the excitement that was the last few days of the Yellowstone Expedition it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that my summer flew by.
Greetings from a laundry mat in Driggs Idaho. This morning we hiked out of the backcountry for the final time. We are sad that our trip is coming to an end, but excited for all the excitement the final few days will bring.
Hello from Mammoth Hot Springs
After spending three days together in the front country we are all now getting ready to pack up and head into our final backcountry site, the Bechler River. It will be hard for this group to leave Mammoth though.
Greetings from Gardiner MT. Our final Yellowstone Expedition of the summer is off to a great start. After arriving in Jackson, WY we set out for Yellowstone to prepare for our Slough Creek backcountry and front country days in the Lamar Valley.
Despite not being in the backcountry, the last few days have been action packed. After getting out of the canyon, getting cleaned up, and moving to a new site near Gunnison and Crested Butte, we were ready for the comforts of the front country.
Well, we just certainly had one of the most epic beginnings to any trip in recent memory. After leaving DIA, we drove to Buena vista for our first night. The action really got started on our second day. We picked up our supplies in Gunnison and headed south. Once we reached our campsite, we quickly set up our tents and immediately got to fishing. Despite the creek being somewhat blown out from a recent rain shower, the guys were hooking into fish right away. We kept up the fishing right till our dinner of chicken burritos. After dinner we turned in, eager for what our first day in th
The last six nights in Yellowstone have been nothing short of spectacular. Our group Split into two groups as we took turns heading into the backcountry of Slough Creek for three nights each.
