Pearl Lakes is home to many species of wildlife, including a resident moose population.
A fine trout! Many members like to fly fish, and this beauty was released after its photo opportunity.
A nice trophy fish! Donations from members make it possible to catch one of these big fish.

The annual stockholder's meeting was held 7-5-14, with many members in attendance. Around 200 people were served (in the rain) at the annual picnic, with the Salopek crew cooking the meat. A good time was had by all!
