Never got past Benson on this trip (Late September 2006, a great snow year). Though I've also been down Kerrick Canyon I've never been over Seavey. You could have also encountered me in Sugarloaf/Roaring River in the 80s. I was little thinner and hair much darker then. I'll have to scan some photos from back then.

Late to the party, but I'm sure I have one or two lake pictures lying around...

Edit: forgot to say where this is! It's the westernmost Swamp Lake on the Monarch Divide.

So it is Lake 9046 the one I by-passed to get to the small lakes northeast
of Hogback Peak.
Lake 9046 is also pretty, though Slide Lakes is really the prettiest lakes in
the area IMO.

Moral of the story: never lend your rod to your son after he loses his last z-ray! (both fish quickly returned to the water as this very small lake has a very small population of brookies)
