Wild Basin 2007.
Today kind of started out crappy.
I’m not going to rant like I’d plan, but I will say this.
Standing at the counter at the backcountry office is not an appropriate place to plan a trip. Do that on your own time, especially when a line out the door forms behind you. It wastes the time of all the other people who planned their trips before “day of”! And Ranger working the station, notice the line, multitask, call somebody, something!
45 min to get a reserved backcountry permit = not good enough RMNP!
A few strikes and a rise or two was all the trout had to do with us today.
