Red River was our 5th leg of our mountain vacation.
This beautiful mountain town is best known for SNOW SKIING..
but it offers TROUT FISHING as well.
Now....we LUV to fish.
We always do the catch and release...
never eat them.
ANYway, we planned to catch a BUNCH of fish but SOME plans never pan out.
We had mountain showers several times a day so we really fished only about 3 hours one afternoon and
caught only ONE fish.
Our lines got tangled together....
Oh, alRIGHT !!!
.....I accidentally cast MY line over HIS
and just about the time this happened, a fish decided he liked our bait.
He was caught but in his fight to survive, he really did a number on our lines and
just about tied them in knots..
we had to cut the lines with me holding on the fishing lines so I could pull this fish in,
Mr. Sweet could get the hook out and could throw him back into the pond.
Long story, short....we're not sure WHO caught this baby fish.
I said "YOU can tell everybody YOU caught this little one..."
"I'll tell them about my HUGE one that.....got away."
You can see the ski runs on the mountain in the above photo.
Chair lifts were running so people could see the beautiful view.
We didn't ride it as just about the time we were THINKING of riding,
the sweet rain started.
We spent several hours with them...
the fellas, sitting on outdoor benches, solving all the problems of the world....
Sherri and I SHOPPED....we were BORN to shop...
