Trout Fishing In America

If you don't hear from me
It's not that I want it that way
I just am not close to the Internet
Or is it just not close to me.

 Prairie Blazing Star getting ready to burst into bloom for the Fourth.

 This dragonfly had just emerged from the water, a new kid on the block.

I leave again tomorrow
Up to the cabin to play
It is in the middle of nowhere
But I trout fish every day.

I  will see you in a week or so
A week isn't really that long
I will think of you through my day
While having so much fun.

 I stop at the little library
A celebrity for some they say
Coming into their town
Oh show how you play
You really do get around
Come back and stay all day
Wait I see some eager eyes
Over at the children's section
They point to a chair for me to sit
And share my favorite selection.

I was looking for butterflies and dragonflies along a large tract of milkweed when this little fawn peeked at me. It was so tiny and hidden well out on the prairie.


  1. This is a nice collection of photos. That woodland road (trail?) is very inviting to me. We will miss you when you are unconnected but enjoy your time away at your cabin.

  2. These are great, Steve. I really admire how you are able to catch shots of flying creatures...and frogs and fawns, too. Enjoy your time at the lake.

  3. Look at that sweet thing with big ears. Love it, and "the new kid on the block." That trail in the woods looks enticing. Fun post. Have a great weekend!

  4. have a great week at the cabin. I expect you'll have some wonderful pictures on your return.

  5. Hi There, So glad to get home and back to blogging. We did have a fabulous trip--but home is pretty nice also!!!!!

    You do need to spend some time in Utah--but don't go there in summer... ha

  6. You just go and enjoy yourself!!! Will miss you but have fun playing around in all that

  7. I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing week! Catch a few fish for me!

  14. I have never been trout fishing, but from your description it sounds most fun!

  15. Beautiful shots! Looks like your enjoying your summer:D

  16. Trout fishing! Oh my, I am just a little bit envious. Fly or spin casting? No matter really, just fishing for trout is a special joy. Hope you have a wonderful get-away!

    I love the photos of the dragon flies...a favorite summer critter.

  17. Love your pics, especially the last one with the deer. Happy trout fishing and happy 4th of July!

  20. Steve, what a wonderful get-away to enjoy. Being away in nature is much better than being at home near an Internet connection. ENjoy and we'll look forward to hearing about your adventures when you have time to share. Happy 4th!
