My buddy Matt Moskal came out to hang with us in Joe's for a few days as part of road trip out to the west coast. I had a lot of fun learning (and being the best) at fishing. We spent a few afternoons at Joe's Valley reservoir fishing for the rumored 40 inch + tiger musky, only managing to catch their food source of small lake trout. It was a nice break from climbing every day.
We also drove out to Salt Lake City to pick Mike up from the airport. On our way we drove through BYU campus in Provo blasting Slim Shady. We received some strange looks to say the least. Salt Lake was impressive. The Mormon temple is a gothic style cathedral with an office building (the largest building in the city) right next door. It was interesting to see how large the Mormon influence is on such a large city. Of all the cities in Utah it has the lowest Mormon population, but it is still the first thing we noticed about the city, especially after listening to John Krakauer's "Under the Banner of Heaven" on tape.
Mike and I will stay in Joe's till the 31'st and then head back to Colorado for summer climbing, making a pit stop in Rifle for a few days. Alex Vidal is coming to visit today and I am psyched to see him but bummed I wont be able to climb much while he is here. Climbing in Joe's is the best...Cant wait to come back another time.
Oh ya, for those of you that didn't see the video I made of Joe's. I pay $10 a month to use Vimeo Plus so you should watch it and let me know what you think. Joe's Movie
