The perfect weekend getaway in Sonora

This past weekend I received a hot tip on a camping location located slightly above Sonora. Being that it was going to be almost 20 degrees cooler up there than in Manteca, I was open to the idea of spending the day someplace cooler.

Ocean or land, fishing is fishing

For the past seven days, I have alternated delicate fly fishing on rivers and ocean fishing for halibut and king salmon, alienating myself from the world in seven to ten hour increments.

Put your money where your heart is

About 15 years ago my friend Joe Mangelos gave me a free ticket to attend a fund raising banquet for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
