Driftless Area: Dec. 2-4, 2011

I got the opportunity to go trout fishing in Northeastern Iowa in an area called the "driftless area."

This area is incredible.  I hope I get to go back sometime when I have more time to explore. I don't think I can do it justice with a write-up.  So I'll just say that the trout were wild and tough to catch (but we managed a few) and post the few pictures I took.  I wish I had taken more pictures because this area is fantastic--unfortunately I only managed a few pictures.

Day 1: North and South Bear
