===> Only part of it ...was not in that sort of hiking shape! I eventually ended-up getting the SUV, and driving to a small parking area off the main highway to fish. The trail access there is rugged!
BTW - that is where I ran into a small yearling black bear. Saw him before he saw me, so I just jangled all the stuff on my fly fishing vest to get his attention and let him know I was there. He turned, and when I stepped forward and made some more noise, he took off like a cartoon character! Back legs were really turning over, and he was going no place for a moment slipping on the pine needles and leaves! When he finally got traction he took off like a shot - probably still running! LOL!

All these years people said,"He's acting like a kid!
He did not know that he could not fly, and so, he DID!
