We often don’t reveal locations on our blog, so this lovely Idaho lake will have to remain unnamed.

Sadly, like many places we’ve visited in the past years, the whitebark pines (like this monster below) are dead.

Larry demonstrates the long-arm-to-the-lens camera shot, a staple of fish photographers. What a giant fish!

The wildflowers are at their prime in mid-August here at 9,075 feet.

Beautiful day, beautiful lake . . .
