Ranger Rich Rants ... Volume 2 sort of

I'm headed into week 3 at Mesa Verde and I am still loving this job!   Sure, I've explained how to get to Cliff Palace about 1,000 times and will surely do this 100,000 times more ... but I honestly try to let the visitor think this was the first time I explained it :-)   I have met a really nice guy and co-worker Franz who seems to have a "mini-me" persona about him.  He's something like 5-6 years younger than me but we have very similar histories and likes/dislikes.  He's my perfect hiking…

I was born to be a Ranger!

Am I in Heaven? or is this just Colorado?

I woke up a bit early this morning (3 am) not because I'm ill, or feeling bad.  No, it's just such a great thrill to be here in Colorado that I have to wake up every couple of hours and pinch myself to be sure it's all real!   The weather has been simply amazing ever since we arrived .... cool, clear, sunny with rich blue sky and snow capped mountains everywhere.  My vacation rental house (see "R&R Pagosa House" on FB) has survived it's first year of my ownership and 3 renters with only a… Continue
