The Adventure Life—In an ultimate slurpee showdown, Yosemite Falls has unseated 7-Eleven as Slurpee King of the West. Recent springtime temps in Yosemite National Park triggered a natural phenomenon called frazil ice, a slurry of slush that flows like lava down Yosemite Creek. “It’s not snow, it’s not ice, it’s something in the middle,” says Ranger Victoria Mates. An episode of Yosemite Nature Notes explores the phenomenon.

Prescott, WA—Endangered wild steelhead now have a little more water in the Touchet River, thanks to the collaboration between a Prescott farmer and a conservation trust. Up to 3 cubic feet per second, or about 1.9 million gallons a day, of water is now protected permanently for steelhead and other fish, and landowner Melvin Talbott will keep growing wheat on his 385-acre farm under an agreement arranged by the Washington Water Trust. The effort is the largest purchase yet of water for instream flow restoration in the Walla Walla Basin.

Filet_MignonSalmonflies: A Trout’s Version of Steak Dinner
Vail—The Salmonfly hatch is something that all anglers in the West look forward to if they’re lucky enough to have a river nearby with these hummingbird-size bugs. Each year, these bugs hatch at a time determined by water conditions and time of day. Typically, these fish will key in on the nymphs for a few weeks prior to the “hatch” before they gorge themselves on the huge adult flies. If you’re an angler, and that doesn’t sound appealing to you, take up golf.
