- September 7: Dream Lake in RMNP
Hike up into the Rocky Mountain National Park for some fall alpine fishing. The hike is worth the trip. Get in touch with Mark Miller for this trip into our local gem of a park.
- September 14: Phantom Canyon Volunteer Trail Work and Fishing Day
The Nature Conservancy invites us for a day of trail work and fishing at Phantom Canyon Preserve. This day will consist of morning corridor clearing and trail restoration, followed by an afternoon of fishing and/or hiking along the North Fork of the Cache la Poudre River.
TNC’s Phantom Canyon Preserve is located about 35-miles north of Fort Collins, Colorado. The Preserve hosts 4-miles of the North Fork of the Cache la Poudre River as it runs through canyon walls with a 650-foot elevation loss from canyon rim to bottom. This volunteer day is a strenuous day of extreme terrain hiking and river crossing.
Volunteer slots are full and there is a waiting list. To sign up, please send an email request to Phantom Canyon Events that includes your name, phone number, and which of the three dates you would like to volunteer. The three work/fish days are July 20, August 17, and September 14. If someone will be coming with you, please include their contact information as well. In order to allow as many people as possible to participate, please only sign up for one of the dates. If you are available for more than one of the dates, then please specify your order of preference. Requests will be granted on a first come, first serve basis.
You can get more information at The Nature Conservancy site.

Note of the Day:
In all of human experience there are only four metaphysical summits: Valhalla, Heaven, Nirvana, and the Green Drake hatch on the Henry’s Fork.
