The Higher Ground Military Program in collaboration with Three Rivers Ranch, hosted another spectacular fly fishing program. We were joined by five male veterans, along with their significant others, for a week on pristine water and soaking in all of the majestic scenery that eastern Idaho has to offer. While we all had a blast landing an abundance of trout and improving our fishing skills, the couples also had a chance to grow their relationships with their partners as well as with their new unit members. The participants left with hope for the future and an eagerness to incorporate their newly learned skills into their lives back home.
“If I could put a word toward this experience, it would have to be “Magical.” Every single aspect of this program was perfect. Not only will my husband and I take the fishing experience home with us, but we will be sure to utilize all of the tools and tricks that were provided to us. My husband and I not only grew with each other but everyone else around us. Absolutely love every single person that shared this special week with us.” – Marlena Thibodeaux
“I would like to sincerely thank Higher Ground for such true hearted, caring, and compassionate staff. You all allowed me to set aside ‘outside life’ and spend an entire week creating a deeper connection with myself, my wife, nature, and recreation. I felt a little more grounded and in the moment day by day. There is something truly divine about the power of nature. The synergy created with recreation and nature is the most powerful way for my mind to find peace and balance. It was a highly therapeutic experience for both of us, one we will never forget, and have taken so much away from. We are stronger than ever and headed in all the right directions. Much love and respect from the Thibodeaux’s, we truly feel we are on HIGHER GROUND!” – Izaak Thibodeax
