After our Grand Design Meet Up in Glenn’s Ferry, we had plans to meet up with one of Nathan’s coworkers and his family and do some fishing down at the Duck Valley Indian Reservation.
This is the first time we have had our big Momentum down at Mountain View Lake. We used to come here quite a bit in other trailers. We stayed the week at the campground – which has power and a few water spigots. We usually boon dock here but thought we’d try the campground out because it also allowed us to be closer to our friends, and have the power hookups in case we needed it with visitors.
A grocery store with a gas station and an Ace hardware are only a few miles away.
The friends we met up with are the same folks we went fishing with on the Missouri in Montana. This time though, Nate’s coworker, Scott brought his wife and family as well. They drove all the way up from California! It was a lot of fun to have them come here with us.
The weather was good, we had days of beautiful sun, and a couple of days of awesome high desert thunderstorms.
We caught some fish on our kayaks, we flew kites, we played cards, and got some neat pictures.
The fish caught by everyone collectively numbered in the 20’s several times over the week. Of course not all were kept, but it is a lot of fun to have action on the poles. A lot of the trout here are large, measuring 18 to 22 inches.
Our daughter Ariel and her friend Tucker came up to visit for a weekend, and so did my aunt Becky! We also colored Easter eggs on Easter morning. Easter is one of my favorite holidays as it reminds me of my Grandmother. I always color eggs, no matter where we are. The act has sentimental value to me.
This time of year right after the snow goes away and the ice is off the lake, as soon as things start drying out, is the best time to be here. The weather is still cool, and the annoying bugs are still in hiding.
Here’s a collection of pictures:
