All Is Well at Lake Station

We've had quite an interesting week here up at Lake Yellowstone. We became surrounded by smoke from the fires, until one afternoon we couldnt even see the sun, and our blue lake appeared brown. The firefighters increased in number and efforts, sprinklers installed around location, even on top cabin roofs. Helicopters, weed cutters, and rangers were kept busy while we debated the possiblity of evacuation. Firefighters were fed at Lake Lodge breakfast and dinner, sack lunches prepared for in the… Continue

Yellowstone Wrap up - Oh the Memories!

Let me start off by saying .... Wow, what a fun summer that was! Now I feel not only "Older and Bolder" but also a bit wiser regarding seasonal employment in general, and Yellowstone in particular. I hope in this blog I can express at least some of that wisdom for the benefit of the reader.

Now that the season is winding down, and all our newly made friends are heading back to college, Europe, or Texas, we have some extra bandwidth to play with. I've gotten used to No Internet (or only Town Day internet). I mean, really, I didnt come to Yellowstone to chat online. Still, I've missed the Cool Works networking, youtubbing, general surfing and such.

Now, with just 26 days left to go, and some incredible adventures under my belt, whats next? I've been challenged and… Continue

Ok, I'm ready to go back

After working at Mt Rushmore for only two months I'm ready to go back to work and stay in the interesting work environment. Some days it was just a job, most days it was fun and I so enjoyed talking with the tourists on vacation. Did I know I was going to miss all those people I had met? Sheesh!!
