Here are a few pics from my trip this weekend. Sorry for the big pics. My daughter is not here to help with photobucket. http://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k546/wespresnell/IMG00286-20110527-1621.jpghttp://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k546/wespresnell/IMG00274-20110526-1139.jpghttp://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k546/wespresnell/IMG00271-20110526-1046.jpg

Nice goin', yonder. Good photos. Something you could do while waiting for tech support :smile: on the size part, would be to edit putting a return ("Enter" key) before each pic.

I gotta ask. Is one of the photos that of the remains of a turbine?:confused:

I've been wanting to see that for a while now! I guess he made it a ways up the trail. Intersection of Chasm?

I hiked into 49 and started fishing from there up. The turbine is between louie's and chasm-gulf on the right hand side. Lots of specs up there. The bow came from alot lower on the bradley. I wanted to go on higher but the weather was starting to change for the worse, so I turned around. I made back to chasteen creek as it started to rain. Thanks for the tip Joe Fred. " I tried to separate the pics but I ran out of time and "patience". "Tech support" is back home and will show me the ropes. What would I do without my kids.

Is that a airplane turbine? If so how long ago was the crash? Kinda neat.

yes. I believe there is an older thread on here somewhere that discusses the crash. I usually try to pack out any trash if I can, but this was a little more than I could handle.

Oh come one you can get that out of there! BTW forgot to say nice brookies. I was so stunned by the crash.

yonder, this is flyred06 that met you and spoke with you at LRO friday. Glad to see you had a good day. I spent about 11 hrs on elkmont and never brought a fish to hand. Glad to see you had good luck. Keep in touch.

Sure thing flyred06. Next time you are up this way, give me a shout. Fishing was really good on the N.C. side. That was my first visit to the LRO shop. Nice folks. Terrific flyshop! If you get into any reds down in bama, be sure to post some pics.
