edD270 - Thanks for responding, we'll have to set a time and place and go for it.
"O" - I have to admit I've never even been down on the Blue. Our family had a grazing permit stretching from Nutrioso to Pat Knoll and I spent most of my time in that area, but most of my old stomping grounds were burnt in the Wallow Fire. Over the past 10 years I've been taking trips around the mountains that I never had a chance to. As a matter of fact, we had just been on a horse pack trip to Bear Wallow where the fire originated about a month before the fire started. What a tragedy that whole thing is.
Do what needs to be done when it needs doing.
