Cutthroat Trout

I hiked in to the lake by the bear wallow and caught a 16" Cutthroat Trout.

 

 

my dad; Bill Witherup

I want to thank you for the air-time & thought given my dad on tonights progam. I am his oldest daughter, living in San Jose. My aunt sent me the info about your program tonight. I am at a loss for words, but feel I had to express my appreciation.
My dads departure was sudden and painful for me. I had not seen him in almost 15 yrs., and visiting to say a final farewell has had an impact on my life. I remember James McGrath, if only vaguely, the last I remember seeing him was 40+ yrs. ago. His poem that he wrote & read for my dad brought me to tears... I am still in awe and amazement over my dad. The continuous warmth, regard, and appreciation that follows him is awesome !!
He was and still is an incredible guy. I do miss him so...

Talking Earth 8/18

This was a very wonderful show--who was the lad that was reading at 10:40? He was great!
