Living & Working in Great Places
Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!
Have I got a hot tip for any of you near SW Colorado this summer .... you MUST visit Mesa Verde's brand new Visitor's Center. What a gem! I was there yesterday and was super impressed by the exhibits and artifacts on display. Up until now the vast majority of Mesa Verde's 2 million artifacts have remained hidden in storage vaults. Now the public will have the opportunity to view these amazing items in rotating exhibits continuing all summer :-) After learning all the basics at the Visitor's Center you can then enter the Park and go see the cliff dwellings themselves. What a fabulous way to spend a day!
Besides the VC, I also got an opportunity to re-connect with many of my Park Service friends from the last two years. What fun it was to relive our many adventures together, and talk about the summer to come. I got a lot of questions about my upcoming adventure in Alaska....everybody seems to want daily photo uploads they can enjoy. Not sure I'll be uploading everyday....heck I have no idea what type of internet service I'll find up there. One thing is for sure.....it's still darn cold at Denali (-10 deg F at last check). I sure hope it warms up some in the next 3 weeks :-) But getting back to Mesa Verde ... just do it and visit them soon. You won't regret it! Ranger Rich
