Road Trippin' to Canyon de Chelly

Here's my next installment regarding the ongoing adventures of Ranger Rich :-)  Went on a road trip to Canyon de Chelly (pronounced Tsai in Navaho....or shey in English).  Some spanish guy spelled it c-h-e-l-l-y ..... go figure.   On my way there I passed real close to one of our most famous landmarks ... Shiprock.

Shiprock is actually the core of a small…

LIfe Happens

I've had alot of crazy stuff happen lately, among them a serious surgery which totally prevented me from taking my job in Yellowstone. HR understood completely, staying in touch with me as my doctors put me on 6 weeks medical leave, which includes no bending or twisting my back, and no lifting any weights over of 10 pounds. A gal can't cook under those restrictions. 

Serious Bummer!

I missed working preseason at Snowlodge, and now, I'll miss Lake Lodge, and I do mean miss.If…

In 12 years of working seasonally, I have never place a review positive or negitive about any employers I have worked for, however I am going to do my first.  This is more of a warning then review, STAY AWAY FROM STOVEPIPE WELLS.  I could go into a list of things that they would find slanderous (even though it true), so I will be stating my opinion.  I feel that upon hire there we serveral promises that where not kept; job titles, job duties, working conditions, living conditions, and a…

Another Cat

We inherited another new cat resident. Darn cats had already shredded up a couch and loveseat and guess what, wife wants new ones now.

Things looking like I can hit the road in June!!!!

As many of you are taking off for wherever your season takes you, I am still here at home in Phoenix, Arizona.  This year has been challenging for me so far and I have had to stick around to help my Mom recovery from cervical (neck/spine) surgery.  For awhile it was frustratingly slow but the past month it has been like BOOM, the pace of recovery has really been picking up.  I don't think it's unrealistic that I can hit the road a month from now, though we shall see.....I am thinking since I…

Leo's First Update from Skagway, Alaska!


Greetings everyone,

I hope you are all having a wonderful start to your summer seasons; I know I am. In the short 4 days I have been in Alaska, I have been on two dog mushing trips, been on a ferry ride and seen humpback whales, dolphins and one killer whale, have moved into a great apartment with two roommates (both zipline guides as well) with a full kitchen and bathroom, have been exploring Juneau (2 days there), have been exploring Skagway (since Friday), been out hiking,…

A Great Start to a Great Summer

It has been an exciting couple of weeks here at Mesa Verde National Park.   My job at the visitors center is going well ..... I really enjoy helping folks get the most out of their time at the park.  Also my weekends have been busy.   A couple of weeks ago I took one of my new friends (Tom) on a day trip to Hovenweep National Monument.  Hovenweep is a collection of Pueblo villages around 1,000 years old.

Tom and I did the 2 mile loop hike adjacent to the Visitors…
