I've been pining for a jungle adventure for a few years now just watching documentaries and such, and then I read a Francisco Orellana biography a few months ago that put me over the edge. So I convinced a few guys to come with me and we'll be hiring some locals in South America to trapise through some jungle terrority in July for a couple weeks. It's actually looking like a pretty dang cheap trip so far. The planning stages have already been so shady that I know it's going to be awesome too. I might end up being a hostage of some drug cartel or something by not going with a travel agency tour guide or something, but hey, that's the type of risk you can take when you don't have any dependents.
Oh and since dogs are in the title of the thread, i would just like to say that i have the best dog in the world. Shout out to my boy Rex
Payson Lakes has a very unique vegetation too. Unlike the usual Utah Pine-Aspen-sage mix. Check the stocking reports and you can get your fill of rulers.
Payson is way too crowded and i usually only camp there in the middle of the week, i always catch alot of fish there, but they are all planters and small so its not the one of my favorite places for the fishing, but i think it is one of the prettiest places around
