Desert fishing at the P

Debra and I rolled over Donner Pass Friday afternoon and checked into a comped room at Grand Sierra (thanks Mike and Henny). We met the Schaefers for a pitcher of Margies and dinner (Bertha Mirandas)and some gamboling downtown.

Mike and I hit the road Saturday morning early for Pyramid. Rain had started to green things up a bit and we had cloudshow high and low

We spent a relaxing evening on the ladders. I hooked and lost a big fish on the fly. Sky was brilliant.
