The Delvinico Triplet
Publicat Sâmbătă, 16 Septembrie 2006, ora 09:14

   Back in the summer of 1956, when girls had ponytails and cars had chrome, I packed up my fishing rod, some sandwiches and beer, and headed for Caribou Canyon in my sky-blue Chevy, a gift from my dad on my seventeenth birthday. The car had seen its share of dusty gravel roads, judging by the many chips and scrapes on its body, but to a ponytail chaser like me it meant freedom and independence, drive-ins and fishing trips and, more importantly, backseat sex. Up until that day when Dad handed me the car key, on a Coca-Cola key chain, my sexual experience amounted to one playground hickey and an occasional French kiss at the Bijou Double Feature Movie House. But after the car, everything changed. Dramatically.


As I cruised toward the canyon at speeds my father would have killed me for, a DJ with a laughing voice told me I could expect a record high and good music for the remainder of the day. So I cranked up the volume, cracked open a Pilsner with my teeth (a habit I've since abandoned after having my teeth capped) and headed in the direction of a fresh water lake so clean and clear you could watch the rainbow trout and pickerel follow your hook to its shore. Nestled in the arms of a thousand blue spruce, Clearwater Lake was a place of beauty, peace and quiet, and mystery.

The area around the lake was a picturesque montage of feathery foxtails and pastels of fragrant wildflowers jutting our of silvery sand. I set my gear on a huge flat stone and spotted a squirrel a few feet away. It stood on its hind legs examining an acorn as though trying to decide whether or not the seed was worthy of storage. Apparently not. He dropped the acorn and scurried away. In the distance a loon cried and I felt as though I was the only person on the planet.

Time passed quickly. Within four hours I'd caught about a dozen trout and a couple of pickerel. I'd forgotten my cooler so I returned the fish to the lake. I was halfway to the Chevy when I noticed a thin line of blue-gray smoke pushing its way upward through the pines like some thin wandering genie that seemed to motion, then beckon. I locked my gear in the trunk and headed toward the smoke. Perhaps it was a tourist's campfire or the chimney stack of an old trapper's cabin. I wasn't especially curious or interested, it was simply too early to go home.



From the lake it seemed a distance of a mile or two but as I wandered further into the forest, over spongy moss and bulbous mushrooms, I realized that I had sorely underestimated the trek. About four miles in, I came to a clearing, a perfect square of...
