Would You Enjoy The Awesome Golden Trout Lakes Membership?

Backpacking is a great way to get away from lifes hustle and bustle and to go offline and be one with nature. Unfortunately, memories of your backpacking experiences can fade with time. The ideal way to prevent this is to maintain a backpacking journal documenting your adventures.

Backpacking Journals

Take a moment to recall details of your most recent backcountry experience. What jumps out in your mind? Now, consider the very first time you ever backpacked. Undoubtedly, you remember a couple of things. Perhaps the scenery, the people you went with, specific paths and spectacular views. The experiences you’ve forgotten are lost to time and, most likely gone forever. If you had kept a journal, the most memorable aspects of your trips would have been preserved.

There are popular stories of people keeping journals that documented their journeys. The journals of John Muir, which he used many years later to write several books is the most relevant. In his journals ,Muir kept notes and sketches of the many years he spent traveling the world and the wilderness. While your backpacking experiences may not be as expansive, maintaining a journal will allow you remember them as the years pass.

An excellent backpacking journal must have a few important features. Initially, it should be compact and easily accessible. Second, it should have something to protect it from rain, spills and so forth. Third, the journal should contain empty areas to compose your notes and drawings. Fourth, the journal ought to include hints to guide you on what things you should write about. Hints might include:

1. Who you went backpacking with,

2. Where you backpacked and how much you enjoyed it,

3. What activities did you do? Fishing?, Dayhikes etc….

4. The geography and weather condition conditions,

5. Paths you traveled on and just how far you hiked, and

6. Any special events that occurred while you backpacked.

7. What photos or videos you took and where they were taken.

At the end of the journey, you should be able to use your journal to help you recall the following:

1. Who you packed with and how to contact them

2. Enough information to advise others who may be going to on the same hike

3. Memories to contemplate years later, and

4. Something to hand down to your friends, children and grandchildren.

To get the most out of your backpacking journal, you must write in it regularly during your hike. Make notes during rest breaks and, my favorite thing is writing in it while waiting for the sun to hit your tent in the morning. Every trip is unique, even if you just go out for a weekend.

Backpacking is an excellent means to get in touch with nature. Keep a journal to document the experience.

 Awesome Golden Trout Lakes Membership- Who Is It For?
First, let me say that there are no newly discovered lakes in the golden trout fishing articles I have written. They have all be there for hundreds or thousands of years.

Of course, not every lake in the sierra have fish and not every lake in the sierra have golden trout. The Awesome golden trout Lakes membership can save you miles of hiking searching for a good lake to fish.

Are These New or undefined Golden Trout Lakes?

I would say this is split about 50/50. About half of the lakes are unnamed and well away from any trails so, in my mind they would be relatively unknown.

The other half would likely be known to trout fisherman who have spent time in the eastern sierra or who may have backpacked to these lakes as a young person with a family member who fished for golden trout.

For those who are new to backpacking or are new to backpacking in the eastern sierra or have backpacked along common routes and paths in the sierra, all the lakes discussed are likely to be unknown.

Why I Wrote The Awesome Golden Trout Lake Articles.

The truth is that I wrote about these lakes more as a backpacker than a fisherman. The value of the articles is in the description of the routes taken and the conditions I experienced along the way. The lakes, for me, were only the destination. The hikes themselves were far more memorable.

You could enjoy the Awesome golden trout Lake articles without even ever going in to the high sierra.

I had one gentleman write to me to say that, as a boy, he had gone to many of the lakes with his father. He found the articles notalgic, and they fondly reminded him of his childhood and his trips in to the high country with his father. I found his letter very moving and eyeopening as to who mighttt enjoy this guide.

So, yes its true that none of the golden trout lakes I have written about are new and most would likely be known to avid backpacking fisherman but I believe everyone can enjoy and learn from the description and information contained in each of these articles. The articles were written to memorialize my adventures high in the sierra and provide valuable information to anyone looking for a backpacking adventure or who only wants to revisit fond childhood memories.
