Traveling to the San Juan

The San Juan is my favorite trout fishery, and with my vacation working out the way it did, Cody and I decided to spend the New Year on the San Juan River guided by The San Juan Angler out of Durango, Colorado.  We decided to take the scenic route, traveling up U.S. Hwy 84 to U.S. Hwy 64 and over to Navajo Dam.  We visited the High Desert Angler in Santa Fe and bought our fishing licenses, and a new Rio 2# line, and a new Ross Evolution green reel, and flies, flies, and flies.  This was a first-time visit to Santa Fe for me, and I really like the town, especially since their petroleum prices were $2.72/gallon!  Cody and I could kick ourselves for not bringing our ski and snowboard gear, but we'll be better prepared next time.  Here are shots from some of the wonderful scenery we drove through, today.  Tomorrow, hopefully, there's plenty of trout pictures to share, especially a 25" Brown Trout!
