Skis in the snow. I didn't even have to take them off to get the picture :)
Pond at Cooper's Rock
We ski'd down to the pond at Cooper's Rocks. Beautiful scenery, absolute silence.
Isaac and I took a little snack break down at the pond.
When the sun started to go down, we knew it was time to head back, since we both forgot our headlamps.
Tearing Down Camp
After an absolutely freezing cold night (low of 15 degrees F) we tore down camp.
Preparing for our hike... up the creek and over the ridge, to grandmother's house we go.
Big Run Creek
Good ol' Big Run Creek. We must have crossed it about 8 times. Good thing there was thin ice and fast moving water to make things interesting.
Big Run Creek (again)
This is where we stopped for our first snack break. Gorp for me, cheese for some of the guys, and a ham sandwich with mayo for Ben.
After topping out (well, almost, there was still a little elevation gain after this point) we stopped at this road for another quick snack before making the rest of the loop up, over, and back down the mountain.
North Fork of Anthony's Creek
This is where we fished Sunday morning. Didn't catch a whole lot, but wow it was beautiful out there. And gorgeous weather!
Joe grinning because this was the first chance he had to ford a stream with his new (to him) jeep.
Joe and his Jeep
Joe's ready to go. Got his waders on, got mud up on his jeep, and miles of clear mountain streams.
We didn't catch anything at first, except this little [crayfish|crawfish|crawdad|mudcrab]. It wouldn't let go though... that salmon egg must've been mighty tasty.
After catching a handful of creek chub, I finally bagged my intended prey. I decided to let him go tho, since he wasn't much more than a few bites-worth.
We found this rock pile by Anthony's Creek. I guess somebody was bored with fishing.
