Early August...where in the devil's camp is Whiskey Island Lake in the High Uinta's of Utah ? Found on TOPO, GPS coordinates entered, backpack stuffed, drive to jump-off point in Mountain Miata. Straight up THERE? Sheesh. Arrive three hours later after a real huff 'n puffer. Growing old sucks! Set up camp and tent just in time for rollicking thunderstorms to move in. They are the flash-va-voom-drench variety. Cram camp back into pack and head down the mountain in soaking rain...made it down in 55 minutes. Drive 20 miles out of the storm. Stop to fish in roadside ponds. Catch 4 in 10 minutes...2 rainbow, 1 tiger trout and an albino...interesting trip. By the way, the Mountain Miata is an integral part of my backpacking experience. Wife gave to me when they first came out 20 years ago and now use the ol' wind dodger to knockabout the mountains almost exclusively. Still runs great. Backpack almost doesn't fit in it but it might fit in my backpack. Zoom zoom.
