Springtime in the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness

Within minutes we were over Hamilton flying into one of the dramatic canyons which characterize the Bitterroot Mountains. Hank followed the canyon up till all the mountains below were covered in the last remains of winter. Then just as quickly the white snow retreated farther and farther until it was only on the highest mountain tops and we were in Idaho, landing at Shearer Guard Station.

Night At The Museum

Beyond the work itself, the nights at the museum served a valuable lesson to the crew.  Though much of the work MCC does is to conserve the land – its beauty, balance, or health – the true value of conservation lies in the people it touches.

For the past three days, 16 of my fellow crew leaders and I took our first steps out of the classroom to start the physical aspect of our service.

The weather forecast for Challis, ID, called for temperatures in the 80s all week and the slightest chance of rain over the weekend. Our camp, however, 16 miles outside of Challis and more than 3,000ft above it, may as well have been a different world

With the season winding down and everyone getting ready for the next step in their lives and careers, there is nothing like an inspiring project and landscape to remind us of the value of our time spent serving with MCC.

Lasting Impact

As the seasons change and the temperatures begin to drop, Montanans begin to brace for the brutal winter ahead. For our second week of Warm Hearts Warm Hearts, our crew drove up the North Fork Road looking for good firewood to split. We were excited to get our hands on some tools and dive into some hard work but saddened that we wouldn’t be seeing the direct impact of our work like we do with Warm Hearts Warm Hearts.
