I went to Vallecito lake to do some pike fishing, however the pike had finished their spawn, and went in deep. So during the camping trip, I heard of a beautiful hike up to a mountain stream that proved to be something I needed to conquer. I tried hiking it the first day, and got about 5-6 miles up the mountain before it started thundering and raining. So I tried it the next day, and made it a full 11 miles up to where the river was a bit slower. Even though I didn't catch any fish, the hike itself was worth it, and the scenery was stunning. Probably one of the most beautiful and dramatic places I have ever been. The river cut into the mountainside and created a breathtaking hike. Even though I didn't catch fish, camping is so relaxing and sorta a reset for life. I love getting out there as often as possible. There was a study that proved camping without any electronics for a 24 hour period can help reset your body clock, and help you sleep sound. This is what it does for me. Vallecito lake is absolutely beautiful, set in a valley surrounded by amazing mountains.
I will be traveling to CO in a few weeks, looking for a decent bag that I could use to do an over night hiking trip, or a day pack that I could use to haul waders, wading boots, flies, rods, camera, reels, some food, and maybe my hammock. Looking to stay under $100 if possible. My thought is to get a pack in the 30l-40l size so If I want I could use for a weekend hiking trip as well. Any thoughts would be great!
