This past Friday was no different. A quick trip out of the city led us to a small, isolated mountain lake. Despite being closed due to an aggressive bear warning, we weighed our options; Who can pass up a deserted lake full of tiny (but assumingly delicious) fish?

Mountain mist hovered above the lake, while the Tantalus Mountain Range danced in and out of the clouds. We juggled a hefty itinerary of fly fishing, beer 'tasting', fire making, meat roasting and landscape photography. It doesn't get more 'pacific northwest' than this.
