Evening Drive...

Mr. Mac and I were bored senseless.Not that we didn't have deadlines to meet, or an over grown lawn to mow. Those things just didn't sound fun at the time, we wanted adventure!!! So, we decided to go for a drive... We went up to our favorite campground site just see how much water was up there. The creek that runs through the campground was roaring, and a couple of camp sites were closed due to flooding, but many more were open and perfect, just waiting for the big weekend..and sooo perfect, that every one of them was reserved. Sorry, I didn't get pics of the campground, but if you look at the pic above and see the mountains in the background that should give you an idea of where we were.
We continued our trek out west, a few miles out of town. I had heard from Mr. Mac that the Bear River was really high, and I really wanted to see with my own two eyeballs how high it really was.. Well gad darn.... It was the highest i had ever seen in my 45 years of life! There once was a boat dock, and a road, and paths, and a bank to sit on while fishing for that big Catfish????



I guess we could fish from the bridge?


We drove down a little further and across the highway to another favorite spot we like to fish on the Bear River. Along the sides of the river used to be nice embankments to sit upon while cooking a can of Ravioli's in the campfire.We could still do that, but we would have to fish by the campfire on the road. Not so sure that would go over well with the Fish & Game..lol


Well heck, I had a blast of a time with Mr.Mac!!! And I love all the pics he took for me on his phone.
We headed back to town, hung a sharp left into the local grocery store to pick up some Moose tracks ice cream to finish the night off.
