In sharing my family’s recent 6 day camping adventure, you read how my lil’ guy became a budding environmentalist and how we decompressed camping at Twin Lakes and hiking along Independence Pass. We then packed up our camper and headed to Monarch Pass. The pass crosses the Continental Divide at an altitude of 11,312 feet. For this post, I would like to share photos that capture my lil’ guy being mentored by his father on how to “catch and release.” Some of these photos were taken on several beaver ponds that were located at Monarch Park where we camped and others were along the Arkansas River.
Looking at these photos of special moments between my son and husband just make me smile. Sometimes, it is the little things…
Looks like so much fun!:)
We had a really great time. It is always great to leave the routine and just enjoy the outdoors.
Micah is a good man and father. We are all proud of him! Striking balance between career and family is tough, and he has mastered it. It’s tough to do.!
I could not agree more. N and I are certainly grateful for him every day. Thanks for stopping in and commenting.
Such beautiful work, Melanee! These images really convey a sense of time and place. What a wonderful tribute to a beautiful moment in time.
Your words make me smile because you always inspire me with your “style” and amazing talent. Thank you so very much.
Cool fun. Just took my grandson fishing and he caught his first fish (tiny) but real. He loved it.
Sounds like you created some amazing memories yourself. Thank you so very much for your comment.
These are firstly such phenomenal photos… such clarity and colour, fantastic use of depth of field and altogether very professional photography… as for the subjects, what a lovely reminder or capture of future history, something to look back on with I’m sure love and a smile… wonderful… love this post…
Wow…your words are greatly appreciated and will replay in a loop in my mind. Thank you for such kind and encouraging words. I love capturing moments between my lil’ guy and husband. I kid my son often that his entire life is documented through photos.
Gorgeous photos! Unassuming yet unbelievably stylish… Love them!! Every time I view your post, I learn something new. 🙂 Thank you!!
Thank you so very much for your continued support and such kind words. I find inspiration in your blog.
Actually, most of the times, it’s the little things… Beautiful pictures!
I so agree. That philosophy is what inspired me to name my blog simplylifestuff. Thanks!
You’re welcome! It was my first visit to your blog, found it here somehow. Really liked it! Keep up the good work, Melanee. 🙂
Nice photos! I went fishing when I was younger. Great hobby.
Thanks so much. It is definitely a way to unwind for my husband. We never keep them…he is strictly catch and release.
Melanee, I didn’t realize your husband was such a serious fisherman?! My husband is too, but down here in Florida, it is all salt water. But he constantly talks about missing fishing in the lakes and rivers. These photos are gorgeous. I am NOT showing the hubby☺
Yes, I think fly fishing is his way to relax. Thanks for the kind words.
loved them all except for the ad for Cabela’s………..looks like a good time was had by all.
Thanks for your kind words. Didn’t plan it as an ad, just liked the contrast in colors. We had a great 6 days.
I really liked the colors, too! The color of brown against that red shirt was fantastic! I also like how you don’t always show faces in your photos…sometimes it’s the details that grab ya!
Thanks so much for your observations and your lovely words.
Your blog is so amazing! I love all your pics! Gorgeous!!
Thank you so very much for your lovely comment.
