The men of the house made short work of the 4-mile round trip to Heather Lake today. 

Still lots of snow at the top.  And mosquitos.  The trail was fairly slippery as it rained hard Saturday and overnight before we set off.  Time up was around 2 hours and time down almost 1.5.  We rallied afterwards to catch a few brook trout on the north fork of the Stilliguamish outside Verlot.  It was the first time the boys had casted a fly rod over moving water.  Amazing how big an 8-inch fish feels on a 4-wt. rod when you’re five…
