the arkansas

It is almost spring. In the low country, the snow has melted and the temps are rising. Nights are still freezing, but the sun brings hope and short sleeves. The fish are sleepy and slow but when a free weekend appears, there's only one thing to do: pack up the Vanagon, grab the mutt, and try to end my drought on Colorado's Arkansas river.
