I’m going to ALASKA and I’m kinda freaking out about it.

This summer I will not be returning to Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone, instead I will be catching a flight and heading to Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska. This is the first time I have ever visited Alaska and the first time I will be working in a park that is only accessible by boat or plane.

In My Heart

So Kalamazoo, know that this little Sturgis person out in Colorado, is thinking of you. I hope you are able to find peace. I pray that you will come together as a community and work through this tragedy. I pray that together we can teach each other the importance of life, family, and community.

#FindYourPark and Treat It Well

The National Park Service campaign to encourage people to find their park is working; if not working maybe too well. Visitation to many of the parks has steadily increased over the last few years. As someone who loves the idea of the National Park Service (NPS) and what it shares I think its a good thing. It's hard to support or take care of something that doesn't have meaning to you.
