The Fishing Hole
Photo by Anita T. Knapp
When I was a young girl, a friend and her family took me fishing on Warm River, about fifteen miles north of Rexburg in Fremont County. I had never been fishing before, so it was a memorable experience. Last April, on a nice day to take a drive, when it was slightly overcast and I was suffering from a bit of spring fever, I set out to see if I could find the same area I had fished so many years earlier. I live in Rexburg and have lived in Idaho since I was four years old, but had not been on this little dirt river road for thirty-five years or so. My favorite pastime is getting out on the road to take scenic photographs and I especially love Idaho ghost towns. I’m strictly amateur, but I have a lot of fun. On this drive, it was a pleasant surprise to come across such a lovely bit of scenery. I don’t think I found that old fishing spot, but I had a good time trying.
