Bear Creek Virtual Earth Views

7/17

I fish Bear Creek west of metro Denver a lot and write fishing condition reports about it.  Here are some Virtual Earth views of some cool fly fishing spots.

There are two ways to use the links.  Each link will take you to the spot named.  And it will open in a new window.  The other way is to start with No. 1 and then copy each succeeding link to the browser address bar.  This is the better method as it will take you along the creek in an overview fashion.
