Taking the back roads. Stunning mountain scenery. Casting a dry fly into little creeks to see what they hold. Catching fish. Ticking off the state's blue ribbon rivers along the way. Big skies. Sampling local brews. Pondering the choice of cheese for your burger. Watching the sun set and listening to the splashy sounds of trout eating caddis from your campsite. Being held up by cattle on the roads. Wildlife. A fly fishing store in every town. A pleasingly slow pace of life.
I could live in such a place.
