Fishing Big Blue

My family has been going to Big Blue since the first time we came up to Lake City.  It's one of the places Kyle and I learned to fly fish, and it's where we take all of our visitors to sell them on the area. This year, I headed up to Big Blue with my parents and our friend Gary to teach him to fly fish, but our trip was cut short when smoke appeared over the ridge--just a small plume at first, but it grew steadily until it covered the meadow.  We got out of there pretty quickly!

Getting ready to fish Big Blue Creek--no clouds or smoke yet

The forest fire now has our undivided attention

Turns out that this fire was probably five miles away (maybe two valleys from us), so we were not in any immediate danger.  The fire has now been pretty much contained.
