Not the life I was meant for...

Posted on January 30, 2011 at 8:23am 5 Comments

Hey everyone, it's been a while!

I knew a lot of you a couple of years ago. I worked at Flagg Ranch, in Wyoming with my boyfriend during the summer of 2009. I had to return to life afterwards, graduate college, and get a job in the major I chose; graphic design.

Which is where I'm at now. And it feels good to be building my "career", with a degree under my belt.


But something isn't right.


For starters, I'm making just enough to get by.…

Catherine- Did you get to do any whitewater kayaking while at Flagg Ranch? If so, where and what class? I am very curious as I plan on getting a job somewhere in either Yellowstone or the Tetons next summer and only few of the My Cool Works crowd ever mention river kayaking. Also, how did you like working at Flagg Ranch. Thanks! Terry

I was just looking at the summer roll call list and saw that today is your scheduled end date at Flagg. Was just wondering how your summer went?

My experience with WWOOF was great. I loved it, and loved Hawaii. You just gotta know what you're looking for in a farm and in your farm hosts. Its a completely different lifestyle, and it is hard work. But there is so much to learn about organic farming. And because I'd never been to Hawaii, learning about the people and the culture was amazing. Its beautiful over there. Where are you looking into?

Hi Catherine, I would be totally happy to write up something longer. Would I send it via e-mail?

there are limitless places to photo my fav is cascade canyon next to jenny lake just south of flagg ranch. also death canyon any map at a vis center should show you how to get there. Cascade canyon has lots of wildlife moose, marmots, and bears black and grizzly. from the canyon you can get great shots of the grand teton. The other fav place is in yellowstone canyon a place called 7 mile hole.
