Andrew and I made it out to the best brookie stream in all the land today. The only problem was - so did everyone else. We decided to meet up at 6 am in an effort to beat the heat and the crowds but we were only successful on the heat part. It seemed like everyone else was out enjoying the Park on their holiday and we had dogs, swimmers and other anglers sharing the stream with us. There has always been plenty of hikers on this stream but I've never encountered another fisherman before today. About halfway up the hill, I noticed the wet boot prints and knew we had company. Even so, the stream was as scenic as ever and we caught some fish, so I call it a successful day.

Thanks to all of the brave men and women who paid the ultimate price in defense of our country. May their sacrifice not be forgotten.

Thanks to Andrew for this very cool shot. Seeing it reminds me I need to lay off the strawberry shortcake ice cream on the drive home on hot days like this - and the pizza, and the beer, and the milkshakes...
