Tick Tock...taking the camera and rod for a walk.

Summer is winding down and soon I'll be back in the classroom and/or in a treestand. At most I have 3 or 4 trips left for trout in 2015. The freezer is pretty empty too, so it's time to start focusing efforts on remedying that problem. Yesterday I decided to check out some new water. I think the trout in the sections I usually fish know my boot size and what songs I like to hum while fishing, so I thought I'd head out in search of "new-to-me" water. I'm sure many of you will recognize some of the spots, they aren't exactly hidden treasures, though they are treasures.

Bright blue skies and fishing popular sections limited success, but it was an amazing day to be exploring Penns Woods. Hence more pictures of scenery then of fish. Enjoy

I had to stop briefly on the way to the stream to take in this view:

This guy came to hand on my first cast, I knew the day would be cursed after that!

Imagine seeing a train crossing this today, that would be so sweet

I then packed up and headed to a place I hadn't been since the spring of 1998, but first I stopped to enjoy this spectacle:

Then on to the stream...

I actually climbed the face of this in 1998...it's not terribly technically challenging.

Then I wanted to explore a nearby stream. I was having great success and thought my day was turning the corner, only to find a wall of posters after only 50 yards...oh well, back on the road where I found this poor guy.

I painted that....ok, not really...

One last stop that offered a bald eagle flying within 20 yards of me....awesome!

I have never, nor could I imagine myself ever, jumping from the top of this!

Great pics grousedog. Seems like you had a great day. I am hoping to do the same after school starts as freedom returns. If the streams are low and they probably will be next week, I'll just take my waders and camera and take in the scenery.

As always, great photos! You definitely have a talent.

I believe the plant with the "beans" is wild senna. The blue berries are likely on silky dogwood.

For some reason I like the "Sunlit Path" photo the best. Did you use a tripod for that photo?

I can be contacted at [email protected].

I did not use a tripod, I don't travel with one on the stream typically unless I am focusing more on photography than fishing, which is rare.
