Was staying at Silver Lake for the week and heard the news on KBIS as we drank coffee and prepared our gear for the day. Fishing plans cancelled and my dad, as was his nature to be prepared, headed off to fill the car gas tank. As the days passed we fished the high country Ellery-Saddlebag-20 Lakes Basin to an eerie silence as no aircraft flew overhead on the way to SFO. Never since have I come close to experiencing the sheer quietness of nature as we experienced in the 20 Lakes Basin away from cars and planes flying overhead. Still gives me a chill to think about it. Side note, it was nearly a week until I saw a television and the tragic images.
