Body-Surfing Ducks

We came over Labor Day weekend for my brother's bachelor party. We camped two nights in Bigelow Preserve at the base of Fire Warden's Trail. Our campsite overlooked Sugerloaf's ski slopes. We arrived on a Friday at Big Wilson. We saw one salmon, but the fish generally weren't biting anywhere over the weekend. We caught 20 trout between seven of us in four or five days. Nevertheless, this has been awesome - the landscape is gorgeous, the waterfalls and remote atmosphere have been relaxing. The cabin is much more developed than we initially expected. We plan to come back in a few years during the height of the salmon fishing season.

One day we saw the ducks take turns body surfing down the waterfalls. They displayed a sense of community and the ability to have fun. Awesome.
