A visit to Papa Hemingway


In August we took a day trip to Ketchum and Sun Valley, Idaho. While there we took time to visit Hemingway's gravesite and the Memorial (located a few miles away). The memorial overlooks what was once one of his favorite flyfishing streams.

It says: 

Best of all he loved the fall...The leaves yellow on the cottonwoods, leaves floating on the trout streams and above the hills the high blue windless skies...Now he will be part of them forever. 

—ERNEST HEMINGWAY, 1939
