So as some of yall know, i had the opportunity to fly out to montana and the big horn river this summer as part of the FFF sponsored "big horn river youth adventure". 12 kids from around the country and I were selected out of a large group of applicants to experience this trip for FREE! all we had to do was pay our way out there (parents were nice and dropped the cash for the flight) and everything else was taken care of. just thought i'd share a few pics with yall so you can see what i spend my summer doing....

Right outside the airport in billings, totally different landscape than nc...
Image

Not sure how this pic happened, cause it was taken from a moving car going down the montana highway, but it made a really cool effect...
Image

Sunset on the first night, pretty awesome...
Image
Image
Image

The view from out cabin...
Image

The Damn at the Afterbay... (the little yellow sign basically says, “if you swim past this point, it was nice knowing you…”)
Image
Image

You probably cant tell, but this tree ridiculously big, just taken from far away…
Image
Saw a bunch of these along the river…
Image

Sunset pics for the rest of the trip, along with one of the moon and a far off thunderstorm over the mountains… (look for the little orange blips, that’s the lightning…)
Image

My friend stone (went to rivercourse with me last year) showing the camera that he is not fond of pics…
Image

No, not the annual meeting of Al-Qaida’s Montana Faction, blindfolded woolybugger contest…
Image

And Finally the Fish…

It was the trip of a lifetime, so glad I could participate in it…

Thanks, Colin

DUDE!!!!

What an AWESOME trip, you have some great, great photo's. I can not tell you how many guys way older than you are green with envy right now. Those were some awesome fish.
You have become quite the fly fisherman. It looks like you even had a double on a couple 16 to 18 inch fish.

Glad you had a good time. Thanks for the photo Essay... it was about time :mrgreen:

I'm gonna have to take lessons from you on how to catch the big ones.....

Looks like a great trip Colin. Imagine the Montana colleges are a little higher on the list now ;)

Colin,

Good to see you had a good time just down stream from my side of the Big Horn.

I am also glad that the program is so successful.

I really need to get over there and help out.

Tell streamer the you guys need to come visit and I will show ya something more than slow elk on the river bank.
