Summer 2012 Wrap Up - Exceeded Expectations

Although I have 8 days remaining as "Ranger Rich" I figured now was as good a time as any to make this summer a wrap.  All my big adventures are now behind me - and what a summer it was :-)   Hovenweep, Moab UT, Canyon De Chelly w/ an Annular Eclipse, San Juans/Telluride, Pagosa Springs, Arches National Park,  Aztec Ruins and Chaco Canyon.  Plus a super fun meetup with Q and Oliver.  What a special time in my life!   I lost some heros too ... Neil Armstrong, Andy Williams ... I guess the older I get the more of my icons will pass on.  It's a reminder to me that I only have a few more years left to pursue my dreams (God willing) so I just need to keep on keeping on.  This has been my second year as a Park Ranger and I still LOVE this job.  I feel so fortunate to be in this position.  If I die tomorrow it's been a fantastic ride.  I hope all of you keep pursuing your dreams and live life to the fullest extent possible.  Happy Trails!  Ranger Rich

Sounds like a great season.... When one is in the winter of their youth, like we are, We need to grab the brass ring whenever we can.
