Between Heaven and Heaven

July 9, 2007

“…but he would have a parting word with charming Dolly Varden.”
-Charles Dickens, Barnaby Rudge

Well above the treeline and very near the rimrock, there’s a lake full of rumors. There could be giant rainbow trout in the deepest pockets. Brood stock. Monsters. Lifetime fish. Everybody knows somebody who’s caught one.


I’ve still yet to catch mine.

But with dolly varden below and goats above, the only problem is not believing.

Suspended between heaven and heaven on a float tube at midnight, every fish is a lifetime fish.
