This classic shot of Colonial and Pyramid Peaks was taken by my daughter Jess on our visit to Ross Lake Resort in 2008.
Ruby Creek Worldwide Operations will take a break for a week starting 3am Sunday 7/19 when we return to the land, actually the lake, of our namesake. Ross Lake tributary Ruby Creek is a long deep canyon in the North Cascades, and my granddad loved to fish there. The family has returned there nearly every summer since he first visited in 1949, a year before the completion of Ross Dam.
Here's a sweet link to a page on the Resort's blog, showing a little of what we may find there this year.
Just saw this post from my friend Steve Weileman, with a cool video showing highlights of the trip he recently guided there. Here's another of Steve's posts with the full story of the trip.
