High in the Wyoming wilderness, an angler ponders the prospect of reaching a distant river and what the waterway might hold. WyoFile's staff went fishing in August and this is one of the places we visited. (Angus M. Thuermer Jr./WyoFile)

When WyoFile’s staff, determined not to have any fewer vacation days than the rest of you, went fishing in August, we took a few pictures of the fishing holes we have visited. Of course the location of these spots will not be revealed. Our Board of Censors, however, has agreed to release an image of one hole so deep and remote that it practically takes a full-on expedition to reach.

This Photo Friday we offer a glimpse of this fishing hole from its edge. By the way, the official report is that there are only a few small, skinny fish here, they’re hard to catch and so bony as to hardly make a meal worthwhile. But if you like hiking the rugged, trailless backcountry of Wyoming, you might enjoy this view.
