Endovalley RMNP

Fall River here takes its sweet time (You have NO IDEA) finding any lazy route it could through this flat meadow area. It does not seem to have any particular destination. Down from us here, Fall River executes myriad complete esses beyond our view. It doesn't look like good bass fishing water here. Probably only have to put up with pseudo or real purists. It hurries up its journey above us in the canyon and well below the bighorn viewing sight to our left. I conjecture that there are salt grasses in the area in this lush meadow that the bighorn keep in mind. There are certainly minerals like the obvious iron flushing down the canyon that are coloring the stream bed. The aspen are all displaying their new green finery while the beetle kill pines are starting to blossom into more and more red on the hillsides. I did abate them somewhat without outright painting them in reality or in Photoshop. If there is be be a forest in Rocky Mountain National Park again, it will have to start all over after the conflagration that WILL eventually happen and once again delineate human boundaries. They won't be able to suppress the NEXT forest fire and all the indefensible outlying housing will be toast. A forest fire is likely to run like bang-gusters here and on the Western Slope (a purely Colorado term).

 

I am sure folks in certain circles would put a contract on me for doing this but here is a Google map I retouched of the valley below the bridge. This is straight west from Estes Park and I best not bring up the 28" cutthroat again. There are probably bass fishermen listening in. I am sorry, I see some spots I gotta hike my fly rod into. Fishing in Colorado can usually accompany a good walk; in a way like golf. See ya...

 

Go to Estes Park on Google Earth then west.

 

later....
