You bet. This week Phil Monahan suggests a few spots — some requiring hiking and others not far from the beaten path — that are almost guaranteed to give you breathing room.
Excerpt: “When I guided in the park, one of my favorite places to take clients was Cascade Lake, accessible via a 2-1/4-mile hike off the Grand Loop Road just north of Canyon Village. The lake holds small cutthroats, but the big attraction for me was the population of eager grayling willing to eat flies.”
