We really had a great time with 05 classmates at Beaver's Bend
located near Broken Bow, Oklahoma. We spent two weeks communing
with nature. Gary caught lots of trout. The river was up and
really moving which made catching the trout more of a challenge.
The weather was mild enough for us to have a fire every night.
When it rained, we just got out our umbrellas and enjoyed the
fire. We made a day trip to the Diamond Mine in Arkansas.
We searched for diamonds but came up empty. Sure was fun.
My cousins, Sue, LaDena, and Terry made it to Beaver's Bend
for a week-end. We also enjoyed feeding the squirrels and
a raccoon who loved tortilla chips.
Sherri started off the troutzilla contest with her 16.5
Gary won the troutzilla contest with this 17 3/4 trout.
This is called Cold Hole. Gary and Sherri caught their
troutzillas out of this part of the river.
Diane caught fish, but when she landed them, they usually
tried to get back into the water. Tom tried to help her
keep the fish on land.
