Here is a recent photo of the Mill Creek 13 I’m building. It is similar in design the 16.5 foot boat I built last summer, except I put a cedar-strip deck on this one.The kids really like it. Since the photo, I’ve installed the cockpit coaming so I’ll have a new photo soon. The flush-mount hatch kit arrived today, so I have to actually cut holes in the deck . . . . waaaah!
Well we backpacked into Sand Creek Lakes via Music Pass again this year, and though the fishing wasn’t quite as outrageous this year it was still very good. This time we went for a long day hike to what we believe is Cottonwood Pass and it was worth it. The views of Crestone Needle and Humbolt Peak and Broken Hand Peak, 2 Fourteeners and a Thirteener was excellent!
