The boys got out for a nice 2-night trip in Colorado’s Elk Mountains this past weekend. Us dad’s stayed home — we knew our two 15-year-olds would have an adventure since a big storm was due to arrive Saturday night. According to the perps, fun was had and “at least we slept with our heads uphill so the water pooled at our feet.” Photo below is what we found at the trailhead when we picked them up. Fish were caught — these kids are fast becoming master fly casters and woodsman.
