    Looks like a good time was had by all. Good on you for getting your family out with you.
    Pike NF is pretty country, makes me homesick for Colorado. Did you get to do any fishing in the beaver ponds?

    dont get caught doing it. had a friend get a $75 a tree fine for it He had cut 6. everything I used was windfall from a heavy storm. As for a permit, contact the forest service and they can tell you better

    ponds had no fish in them. better for hunting ducks and geese when in season. oddly enough didnt see sign of any beavers.
