I'm not exactly known for being cutting edge or "with the times". No Facebook, no Twitter, just this antiquated blog to get my thoughts out. So, with that in mind, I figure it's time to do what the cool and smart kids have been doing for nine years (Cyber Monday debuted in 2005).
Here's the deal. For one week, starting on Cyber Monday (12/1/14), any new reservations for fishing or lodging will be discounted 15%. As my dad would say, "that's a heck of a deal!"

It's Thanksgiving week which means the Holtan household is busy getting ready for the big day. Turkey to buy, pies to be made, trying to figure out who will and who won't make it are just a few of the preparations for Thursday.
Remember, whoever is or isn't at your table this year, be thankful. I know I am.

On the ligher side. This day also added to my litany of Kenai River stories. I'm oftened asked if I've ever seen an eagle on Eagle Rock. I haven't, but next time, without hesitation, I can say, "no, but I've seen 10 firemen on it."

|Lower Fuller Lake|
Biologists have taken core samples from hemlock trees near Upper Fuller Lake and have found that some of them date back to the 1500's. I wonder if this was one of them?
Overall, this was a fun hike. But, you'll need to be in reasonable shape to do it. All three of us definitely had a few aches and pains the following day. As far as fishing is concerned, I'm not so sure this is destination fishing spot. Both lakes are small which leads me to believe the overall population will be too. I guess that means I'll have to check it out again when the lakes are ice free.
