Coming from the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains to the prairie is a major transition. I had never seen an actual prairie before! Holy cow, seriously, this is cow country!

“This is going to be an interesting landing.”
These are not the words one wants to hear from a bush pilot as your flying full speed in a small Cessna airplane towards a makeshift landing strip in the backcountry within the Payette National Forest.

Being a part of a conservation corps crew is an experience that can be hard to express, especially to someone who hasn’t done something like this.
