I just finished my first day in uniform and boy ... it felt GREAT! I loved the interaction with the public, and did OK learning all the admin stuff surrounding my job. I still have a lot to learn, of course, and a lot to remember :-) but over time I hope I keep improving. I was fortunate to have some great coaches and teachers today .... fellow Rangers that have been here before ... some of them nearly 20 years! I also had the benefit of working with one of our "Interpretive Rangers" named Marie ... and Marie knows her facts & figures regarding Mesa Verde! In fact Marie's passion is researching ancient Pueblo cultures, and she has been hard at this for at least 6 years. She told me amazing things about the Puebloans (sp?) in between guests today.

I'm sure everything will eventually get old and routine ... but right now I can't wait to go to work tomorrow! Hope everyone else is having positive experiences as their summer kicks off. More to come .... Ranger Rich
