As I stated in my previous post, I have been spending considerably more time at work lately due in large part to added responsibilities. I received the usual construction promotion; more responsibility, more hours, more stress, and same pay. It does come with quite a few pats on the back and congratulations from your peers, which is nice, but it also comes with more than one "don't screw it up" from the elder superintendant's and construction managers. There is, however, an added bonus with this new project...it's 500m from the bow river, on private land with no public access points in the near vicinity, and I will be there all summer and fall if things go well. I have already let the wife know that I will be "working" late most nights as we try to accelerate the already tight schedule on this project. Evening fishing on the bow river can be exceptional in the summer time with caddis hatches most nights as well as numerous mayfly and stonefly hatches. The only unfortunate thing is, I will have to wait several weeks before the river drops enough to become fishable.
Runoff in full effect
These pictures were taken just behind the job site, and this is where I will be spending some "productive" hours "working" late. It's not often that work helps me get more time on the water, but it sure is nice when it does.
