Today we hiked over Selden Pass, which was not bad. We first went fishing at Heart Lake, where we each caught trout. Afterwards we hiked to Sallie Keyes Lakes. There we experienced in the evening the wildest thing ever. It seems like all the trout in the lake came to within 20 feet of shore and the water is literally boiling. They are all rushing into the reeds and jumping wildly. There must be a hatch of some insect going on.
The trout bite very agressively and each cast gets us a fish. We find a fire place with a grill and prepare our fish on it. The golden trout turn out so nice! I slept good that night and see again a shooting star.
