Fly Fishing: Lots of good fishing in this area with Flying Fishing being one of the favorite ways of doing it. The pictures above are some of the fishermen favorite areas.

“San Juan River Fly Fishing
Recent studies have suggested that there are more then 15,000 fish per mile. Located in the northwest corner of New Mexico, the San Juan River is world renowned for providing some of the most rewarding trout fishing you will ever experience. The San Juan River quality waters, which is a 4 miles stretch of river below Navajo Lake Dam (tailwaters) is a consistent producer of both rainbows and browns averaging 16 to 18 inches, with many reaching much larger proportions. It is all catch and release and we take pride in preservation of the river, trout and all the beauty that make up the New Mexico San Juan river valley. ”

Weather: The temperatures are staying pretty high, for now it is about 90°. I hoping for the evening rain. The weatherman says about 40% chance in the late evening.

Weather update; It started raining about an hour ago (5pm) and has not stopped, I’m guessing that about a 100% :) . Lots of water and mud, the tent campers have got to be sad :(

A little about the Lake: This is from Wikipedia.
” Water is impounded in Navajo Lake by the earth- and rock-filled Navajo Dam, 3,800 feet (1,200 m) long and 400 feet (120 m) high, completed in 1962. The 15,600-acre (63 km2) lake is over 25 miles (40 km) long and lies at an elevation of up to 6,085 feet (1,855 m).”
Here is a link to Wikipedia article.

I always like walking around the lakes but I don’t guess I’ll be doing that with this one ;)

Weather: It has rain just a little each of the last three evenings and that had made things a bit cooler, I’m thankful for that.

Earth Dam

Pictures: A couple of shots of the earth dam that holds Lake Navajo in place. The Dam has two roads, one going across the top and another coming down the backside of the dam.

Riding: Yesterday one of my friends and I did a lot of riding and I got a few pictures, so for the next few days, I be sharing :)

Weather: The weather is a little warm especially not being hooked to electric to run a fan or AC. I”ll tough it out for a little while.

Weather Update: Looks and feels like we might get a rain/thunderstorm, that would be good, as it would cool things off. Oh yeah, here it comes.

Ready: I’m hooked up and ready to go. Leaving a place is always bitter sweet to me, I hate to say good bye to a place that I’ve enjoyed do much but do look forward to moving on. I’ve had some fine walks here, but I look forward to walking where I’ve never walked before.

I’m like the bug above on the flower, “It’s been nice here but that flower over there sure looks nice”

A Cactus Show

Pictures: The cactus bloom each year but this year they seems to be putting on a show here in this area, guess the rain was just right this year :)

Almost done: Down to 3 days to go :) I am ready for a change. This has been a good gig and I would recommend it to anyone that might want to try Volunteering for a bit, beautiful place and good folks to work with. There is lots of work to be done so it is not for those that just want to hang out :)
