Sally and I escaped the smoke, heat and a PG&E Smart Day, and headed up to beautiful Saddlebag Lake in the Tioga Pass area for a day of fishing.
Fall colors were showing off in several spots. Short willows were bright red and several others plants had turned a bright yellow, reflecting in the lake.
Reflections of the colorful mountains to the north were gorgeous!
But wait, there was more!
I worked my way up to my lucky fishing spot, threw my line in the water and Sally and I waited for a fish to jump on my hook.
While Sally and I waited for the fish to bite, two waterfowl provided entertainment. They continuously dove while they were feeding, only to reappear. This fascinated Sally. They also knew Sally was there and stayed just out of her reach.
Is it just me or is that bird on the left giving a raspberry at Sally?
After about an hour of thinking she was bound to catch those birds, Sally finally said “Phooey.”
Sally and I came home with a nice 14 incher, which I cooked for dinner. I am sure glad that Sally had come up with this idea to get out of the smoke and heat for a day. It was just gorgeous up thee and gave me the strength to endure that weather back home a little longer, hopefully not much longer though.
