We are easing back into the real world after a wonderful week on the Middle Fork. We had high expectations based on the experiences of friends who have floated with Hughes as well as your very own testimonials. And we found out that everyone – even you – understated it! This was a trip that will not soon be forgotten…I will remember my first-ever sighting of bighorn sheep, Bill will remember his first attempt at fly fishing and of course, there was the camaraderie, great food and total relaxation. It was a great feeling to be in a place where the only Blackberries one might find are the ones found on bushes. And the guides? Well, they are seven good reasons why your company has such an outstanding reputation. Not only are they experienced boatmen who put safety first, they show a reverence for the resource and remind us all how it is to be protected and treasured. And they are pretty good cooks, too! Thank you, Jerry and Carole, for taking such good care of us. I hope to enjoy another Hughes trip again soon.
