Amazing photos and a great story about preserving the memory of your dog with a fly.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your photos and report. Such a great read. =D>

I'm now trying to determine which picture captured the richest hue of red: (1) the alpenglow at lower palisades, (2) the markings on those beautiful fish, or (3) that poor soul's heels! :eek:

I'm still rather convinced that you can achieve more than you've ever dreamed of if you just lower your standards.

Great report Ladd. It is amazing to think about going on an adventure like this. I relate it to the thoughts of winning the lottery, but actually achievable. I may have to break it up, but I think it is important that I do this before I die.

Awesome trip report. Great pics of both fish and scenery. I bought that harrison map pack around 2008 I think so I hope my oppurtunity will come soon as well! Thanks for sharing.

Hey Elliott, as Tomba correctly indicated, it's a Tarptent Notch. Derek used one too on the first half of the trek and loves his as well. It is a pretty awesome tent that allows for a lot of flexibility in set-up.
