My Process Engineering Director was in town this weekend from Sweden, and he wanted to tag along with me on my fishing trip. So, I had to choose somewhere that had a "destination" for him to hike to along with some fishing possibilities for me.
I ended up choosing Ramsey Prong since he could continue on to the cascades if he so wanted. (BTW he ran all the way to the cascades and back in about two hours @ 46) I walked in with him for about 3/4 mile before hopping in the water. Talk about some wonderful looking plunge pools. Unfortunately, the catching was extremely slow for me. It didn't take long for me to figure out why, as I quickly started seeing wet footprints on the rocks. I was surprised by this since there were on a couple of cars in the parking lot when we arrived, and I did walk in a reasonable distance to try and avoid crowds. Regardless, I only managed to bring one small bow to hand. Oh well, there is always next time.
As we were leaving, the parking lot was packed. People were double parked everywhere, there wasn't even room for a car to turnaround. I also couldn't believe the number of people heading out up the trail with no supplies. Not even a bottle of water! I think too many people take for granted how easy it is for something to go wrong. Whether that be getting dehydrated, twisting an ankle, getting bee stung, etc.
