Colorado – Day 9

August 30, 2008

After the hike to the summit of Mt. Elbert we were both beat. Seriously beat. Chris asked me what I wanted to do and I said “anything as long as it doesn’t involve any more hiking”. So we spent the day being tourists. We drove back into RMNP and up Old Fall River Road to Trail Ridge Road and back. Then drove down the St. Vrain Canyon to Lyons, just knowing we either passed John Geirach’s house or maybe even his pickup parked alongside the stream somewhere. On the way in to RMNP we stopped in Lyons at Mike Clark’s South Creek LTD. It was a pilgramage for me. So many great bamboo rods and other accoutrements surrounded you in there. I could’ve spent forever there. I drew a lot of inspiration off the visit. We bought some Geirach and A.K. Best autographed books and a few of A.K.’s hand tied flies (awesome ties).

The next day we did nothing more than fly home. It was nice to see deciduous trees, a happy family and a big comfy bed again.
