Backpack Camping High Mountain Lakes For Trout Dinners With My Dog Ash!

  • Published on Sep 15, 2017
  • Backpacking Into Secret Remote Wilderness Lakes For Trout Dinner With My Dog Ash
    I took this camping trip to scout out several lakes that I'd been curious to know how good of fishing could be had. I caught brookies, cutthroat and rainbow trout. Most of these Lakes I had to hike to. Lol, one of them was car camping all the way with a nice soft bed and pillow!
    The classic original Firebox Stove and the ultralight backpacking Nano stove both run on gathered fuel. Provides a true to camping campfire ambience while cooking up your favorite camping meals over a wood flame!
    Food always tastes better when it's cooked over a campfire and the Firebox stove makes that quick easy and No Trace!
    The Firebox Stove folds flat making it easy to stow away for emergencies perfect for 72-hour kits, bug out bags or vehicle emergency kits.
    Interested in the gear you see me using in my video's?

    Love the video, I live in Utah and hike certain sections of the Great Western especially around (Summit trailhead and Pine hollow,) alot to get to more remote areas to camp and other outdoor activities, where was this on the GWT.

      I don't say where I am on the internet anymore, too many places being trashed because of it. That is awesome you get out and explore here in Utah, we are lucky to have such an amazing state to do this in.

      The dogs only carry their food and a blanket for them to sleep on. The pack is definitely not heavy at all or hurting them. Thanks for the concern though!

    Awesome. You're a mellow dude. Love your cooking rig. One suggestion. Let the water cool enough to stop boiling before you pour it over the coffee.

    • Spencer
      Spencer 3 days ago

      At mountain altitude water boils around 10 degrees lower than at sea level. In Colorado the shops I frequent say to use boiling because of that difference.

    What a beautifull place! Great fishing trip, brought me memories when my dad was alive and we went fishing and hunting in places like this in my country. Sadly most of those places are now either inaccesible, due to very high entrance fees, surrounded by private property, so virtually inaccesible :( or contaminated. A great thing you did taking that trash with you and thanks for the video!

      Thank you for watching, I appreciate the comment. I am so glad you have those memories with your dad. I have noticed places are getting ruined by too much exposure and people trashing it. I try to do my part when I am out and about. Have fun out there!

    What a wonderful trip. Nice fish. You always do a great job cooking. It is crazy how some people go to all the trouble to get out into a beautiful area and then trash it. I am glad that I cannot think that way. I had watched this video before and remembered what you said about the pull tab. On my last trip out I found a pull tab.
