I went to work and then left for an appointment, after that we headed over Fernan Saddle and dropped into Tepee Creek drainage. We arrived just in time to enjoy some drinks and a wonderful meal. The hornets were real bad, but everyone tried to ignore them. Once the sun went down the hornets went to bed, unfortunately we were so tired everyone hit the sack early.

The next morning Raina and Dean went for a hike up the Independence Creek trail. I started fishing up river and Bridget and Dennis fished downstream. I hit some good fish. The big ones were sitting under cut banks, but I drew them out using stonefly nymphs. I fished about two miles upriver and hiked back via the trail above the river.
When I arrived back in camp the place was a buzz, pardon the pun, and everyone was packing up and moving to a new campsite. The hornets had gotten the best of us and while the gang was out on a bike ride they found a wonderful campsite down on Tepee Creek.
|Wine in the box, glass on the box.|
|To plastic cups that change color! So easily entertained.|
Each night the drinks flowed and the stories were told. Dennis took lots of night photos using the campfire as his light. It was great to get together with these friends and we decided that this would be an annual summer event. I am already looking forward to our future gatherings.
