Fly fishing the Upper Owens River in the winter is fantastic. It is stunningly beautiful. Peaceful. Quiet except for the occasional piercing sound of a hawk. Clear and very cold this day. Not another person to be seen. The fishing went off.
The last week and a half of east side life has been pure, dirtbag bliss. The car camping, boulder pad hotel crashing, sent projects and shared laughs with friends have been unstained joy. The music blasting as I propelled myself South toward the playgrounds of the Sierras, the long days of absolute smiles and the overabundance of stellar climbing will be thoroughly missed. I now embark on my next adventure with my great friend and climbing partner, Philabot, to the crags of all crags.. Yosemite Valley. If weather permits we plan to climb two classics, Nutcracker and After six, along with a couple more unknown objectives. With the car packed to head back to Sacramento, a heart full of excitement and a pocket full of unpaid wages collected from a former employer, I’m ready for the next three weeks of greatness before the big trip to Spain.
It feels as if the experiences and events of the last six months have been warped through the 4th dimension, spun through a teleporter and thrown across the timescale. Half of a year full of amazing days climbing, laughing and living has passed right before my feet. An infinite ridgeline crossed and looked back upon with nothing but a smile in my eye and two hands thrown into the blue sky above. This life that has been laid before my feet has certainly given me a great stride and wonderful pace for the next decade of my life. It really couldn’t be possible without the help of my wonderful family, the amazing friends I’ve gained and retained, and a never ending stoke on life.
Bishop, California is a fine place to be in the fall. Go for a walk around Convict Lake with your camera. Spend the afternoon working your way up Bishop Creek with a fly rod. Drink some cold beers at the Bishop Creek Lodge. Start a conversation with the person next to you. Slow down and appreciate life. Shoot more film. Concentrate and do things right. Deactivate your Twitter account. Be thankful.
