Rumors of Reds...

“Have you considered that if you "don't make waves," nobody including yourself will know that you are alive?”
~Theodore Isaac Rubin
Josh, Sam, Derek and I hit the soggy trail this weekend in search of those rascally salmon but to no avail. Not that they weren't out there (i.e. my chosen quote) we literally watched them jumping upstream 'making waves' and could not, even after hours of trying, get one on a line!! This weekend the salmon won. Thankfully, word on the river was we weren't the only disappointed anglers running all over the Kenai in search of a hot spot.

We did manage to see a sow grizzly and 2 cubs on the banks. The mother even fought off another bear who was apparently getting a little to close for comfort. Then we watched a couple more wandering in, I tried to video them for you but you can't really see them. I was hoping the bears were having better luck fishing than us:)

Sam with the only 'red' caught all weekend.
Sometimes things just don't work out as planned but time with my bros and friends was precious as I leave for Quinhagak on Saturday! Josh snapped these pics out the window on our way back.

Riding around in the car looking for fish, maybe that's why we didn't catch any???

"Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when test and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don't try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way."James 1:2-4
