brush hollow

friday afternoon we made the short drive to brush hollow reservoir, about 40 minutes west near penrose, co. its a small lake, but the no-wake policy made it sound canoe friendly. we put in at the small dirt boat ramp near the parking area on the east side. i managed to back the trailer in on the first try (~looks proud~). once we got on the lake, we found there were only a few other people out. we paddled a little ways up and then broke out the fishing rods. despite some noisy neighbors, we had a good time, and caught a few small fish (silver spinners were the big hit). my bluegill was the prettiest catch of the day, but pete caught the world's tiniest bass-it was about the same size as the lure.

we had our eye on some rain clouds, and kept close to the shore, but the wind rolled up on us pretty fast anyway. we found ourselves making a struggle back to the boat ramp ("i'm paddling, why aren't we going anywhere?!!") but managed to make it back without getting divorced. barely. ;)
