Curecanti Creek

Mike and I had a little adventure today. We drove along highway 92 (one of the highways that both of our moms were terrified on) to originally go fishing on Curecanti Creek. We stopped at an overlook called Hermit's Rest. If you click on the picture, you may be able to see a 20+ foot boat with a cutty cabin in the water just left of my elbow.
Most of the times we've been fishing I haven't caught anything. We are still figuring out this Colorado fishing. But today I was proud to catch my first brook trout out of this beautiful creek!

We also stopped at an overlook to see the Blue Mesa Dam. This dam created the largest reservoir in the state. (For scale you can see a red SUV on the top of the dam.)
