Looking for a Repeat

After my successful trip on Tuesday, I was eager to get Tracy on Snake Creek with a fishing rod in her hand. We headed "up the hill" after attending a retirement send off lunch for my boss.

The sun was still high in the sky after we got the Utah license but our plan was to fish early and eat a light dinner before heading back down to Salt Lake.

The Heber Valley is not too far away but we had been hitting it pretty hard for almost a week and the late nights and early mornings were beginning to take their toll. This time of year it was light by 5:30am and stayed light enough to fish until almost 10pm.

We didn't find any fish but saw some wildlife and got these photographic entries for the blog:

A pretty pair of Cinnamon Teal

The "upside down horseshoe cloud" was a harbinger of poor fishing.

Here comes the Heber Creeper!

The tourists on the train were impressed with the "real fisherman".

Fishless but happy.

Someone was watching as we took a walk down the
tracks to the Provo River crossing.

"Hey look at me - I'm pregnant!"

We hit the frozen yogurt shop on the way home.
You know, dairy makes you sleep better!

Looks pretty green there! Where are the fish hiding?

Nice shots of the local wildlife, frozen yogurt for a sleep aid? You know I'm going to try it!
