I’ve been in the lower 48 states for the past four weeks after spending May through part of October in Alaska at Katmai National Park and Preserve. As I begin to have time to process my last summer job with the National Park Service; I am pleasantly surprised at how positive/up-beat my posts were. I struggled like I normally do with anxiety and homesickness and was worried it would come across too much.


This summer was full of adventures that were almost too neat to comprehend. I hope to fill you guys in over the next few months with different stories, and some projects that I worked on.

In the meantime, while I am looking back there have been some interesting life events moving forward. I am back with my guy, after being apart for nearly 10 months. I will be taking this winter off from any National Park job to spend with him while we move to a new place. There is a lot of yard work, home improvements, and home projects in my future…. and I gotta say…. I’m excited for it.
