Warm Hearts Warm Homes is a wildly rewarding and unique experience.  It’s a great way to wind down a season of trails!

Warming homes and hearts in Polson

Warm Hearts Warm Homes is a different kind of work than we do most of the season here at MCC. But as we quickly found out, different doesn’t mean less important or impactful.

Already we’re growing reminiscent and nostalgic for what happened just a short while ago, but it’s left such an impact we can’t help but bring it up to each other so frequently.

This one was a doozy! Our first time backcountry! The gang loaded up from the Bonners Ferry Ranger District and arrived at the trailhead with our towering packs—we spent only two nights backcountry, about 4 miles into Idaho Panhandle National Forest. I think it’s safe to say ‘twas a breeze.

The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday.  Strange I admit.  Most people go with Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving…you know, the ones where presents, food, and sweets are provided. This year, the Utah crew was stationed in Glacier National Park during this sweet, sweet holiday.

Stopping Erosion on the Pacific Northwest Trail

It’s not about if your shoes are tied; it’s about how well they are tied. It’s not about if you’ve eaten breakfast; it’s about if you’ve eaten enough protein to stay standing until your first break. It’s not about if you slept; it’s about if you’re mentally rested enough to hike straight uphill while it’s still dark out.

Preparing for a day of working on trails takes a physical, mental, and emotional toll.

In nine nine-hour days they changed Glacier National Park in a good way. How many people can say that? Unclear, but these six and their two project partners - RJ and Zach surely can.
