Steven FitzGerald said: what a stream! it reminded us of our trip to glacier national park. gin-clear water flowing boisterously between boulders and over multi-colored rocks... we could easily see the stream bottom in five-foot deep pools... we only ventured about 1/2-mile from the trailhead on our scouting voyage, but we will return soon and often; and of course, with the fly rod... verified bobcat sightings are another reason... thankfully we recently moved to candler, so we're only 45 minutes away...
