Back to School – September 9, 2018

I hope all of you who are hesitant to embark on that new journey or who are standing at the threshold of the next chapter in life find your internal welcome wagon and soak up all the courage it can give you to take that first step.

May This Moment Bring You Joy – August 26, 2018

When I was working seasonally, I remember the August grumps would take us all over. Then almost magically, all that would fade about the end of August as fall would start to usher in. The new season felt like a bit of a new beginning, and it would buoy our spirits, and get us through the home stretch to the end of the season.

Summer Ain’t Over Yet! – August 12, 2018

Wherever this note finds you, I hope that you’ll rally in taking on the last few weeks of summer.  Go after them with the fury and enthusiasm that you did in the first weeks when the trails were first starting to clear, or the water was just bearable enough to jump in.  Knock off those bucket list items before the leaves fall and the snows fly.  Tackle that backpacking trip, the camping trip, or the one giant hike that you’ve been talking or thinking about all summer. 

Trail Talk – July 29, 2018

If you’re currently or have previously worked a seasonal job in a beautiful place (as we hope you all have or will), chances are you’ve participated in a timeless rite of the seasonal work experience: Trail Talk – folks coming back from their weekend and recounting the exploits from their days off. The stories are as colorful and varied as the personalities that retell them.

Mid Summer Site Improvements

Fathers Day Edition – June 17, 2018

And therein lies the lesson time has to teach us.  Be grateful for all of your moments soaking up the joy and sorrow of life, the time witnessing the world’s beauty as well as the time enduring its hardships.  They are all precious, and they are precious because they don’t last forever.
