Back To The Basics


Looking back on my last blog post, I realize that I may have started off on the wrong foot. This time around, instead of writing on the topic of bears, near and dear to my outdoors experience so far, I’ll get back to the basics by giving a proper introduction to my day-to-day life. I promise to keep it short and sweet.

I spend most of my time in a district of Grand Teton National Park known as Colter Bay. It’s where I live, work, and play. Being the largest development in the Park, Colter Bay never lacks for activity. There is something for everyone to enjoy, whether it’s horseback riding or canoeing on the Lake.

Home for the summer is a modest unit in a two-story apartment building, comfortable and cozy. The visitor center where I work is about half a mile away from where I live, five minutes by bike and only fifteen on foot. My trusty bike, lent to me by the Park Service, has made short work of my commute to work and around the area.

Work at the Visitor Center is usually eight hours or so every day, five days a week. When my days end, I head back home with a view to die for along the way.

The rest I’ll leave to your imagination.
