(I wrote this post while sitting in my car waiting to leave the Hillary Clinton rally back on February 7, 2008. I just discovered it while attempting to organize my computer a bit better. Wish me luck!)
Wow. I just finished watching Hillary Clinton speak at a rally in Seattle, WA at Terminal 30, the Princess pier of all places. Met two cool guys, Jeff and Will, brothers who have been into politics most of their lives. Will actually caucused at 18 the first time a Clinton was… Continue

I love having Tony's videos on the front page of our site, but they do take up a bit of space and time to load, so I think I'll be separating them out as blog posts going forward. Tony Farley has a great… Continue
Have you ever visited a place that just doesn't seem real it is so scenic? There is a place like this in Yellowstone that is visited by thousands every month. I am referring to Artist Point overlooking the Canyon of the Yellowstone and the Lower Falls. I mean come on folks ... this view just can't be real. The canyon walls are all different shades of tan and pink due to the thermal activity there over the last few thousand years. The Lower Falls are just magnificent as tons of water pour over… Continue
The current economic recession is giving some clues on how employees can best deal with future downturns.
I do have this penchant for making business plans. It’s my safety net. Some people that do seasonal work year round have the option of going home for awhile if things don’t quite work out. I do not have that option available. If I have problems, I’ll soon find myself among the ranks of the homeless. A plan in place is not quite a security blanket...it still has a lot of holes. So… Continue
This past Saturday I finally got a chance to leave Yellowstone for a day and go see my favorite mountain range....the Grand Tetons. The way these mountains shoot straight to the sky above Jackson Hole is just stunning. I must have snapped 20-30 pictures during my brief tour....but I just couldn't help myself. Every time I looked at those mountains I noticed something new that I just had to capture with my camera. I took the scenic route through the park....the road that goes over Jackson Lake… Continue
This last winter season was my second time as Second Chef and Operations at the Kay El Bar Guest Ranch in Wickenburg, Arizona. Before I begin this review, I’d like to refer you to my blog about people’s views on places, Ketchup on Waffles. I’m also going to write this review straight...you can decide for yourself which is good, bad, and/or… Continue
So it's not THE Tour, but there is a major bicycle race in Alaska taking place yesterday and today...the Fireweed 400.
There are several levels...from a 50-mile fat tire roll to the 400 mile race from Sheep Mountain Lodge to Valdez and back. The longer races started yesterday. The winner finished at 8 this morning with a time of just over 20 hours.
Saturday is usually my day off. But at 5 am I was over the breakfast flattop… Continue
Like last year, we want to invite you to share your summer job world with us. So wherever you are this Saturday, July 11, from 12:00am to 11:59pm, we want you to take photos, write blogs, or make videos about where you are and what you are doing.
This weekend's hike from Sheep Mountain Lodge took me down the Alaskam Road to Knob Lakes.
It was a very pleasant morning. The last few days there has been very few clouds and very little wind. The temperatures soon rise in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Then in the afternoon rain and some wind. First I went down to the main lodge and getting a little breakfast and packing a lunch. When I cam back up to Hillside House, I woke up Petra,… Continue

So today I experienced one of the better perks of working at Sheep Mountain Lodge. The lodge does a lot of business with Meekins Air Service. They use the airstrip often for their sight seeing tours.
Anjanette Steer really liked the way this season's employees gelled and our basic attitudes and work ethics. The other night when the owner came in for dinner, Anj talked to them and arranged for us to take some short tours whenever they had the time.…
