My first hike with my new Z8. I had planned to hike to Chain Lakes but was thwarted by a snow drift across the road that I didn't want to cross without help to get me unstuck. So I parked and took a cross country jaunt to Grizzly Lake to see what I could see. Turns out there are some 3+lb rainbows in the lake, but none would take my offerings on this fine day.
2023 was another great year of camping at McGee Creek and I braved the trip without a camera (as I patiently waited for my Z8 to arrive). McGee Creek Canyon was absolutely exploding with color! Up at Rock Creek we had a great time crossing massive snow drifts on the trails in the middle of July thanks to a massively above-average snow season.
