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.

On the plane to Montana, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I loved the outdoors and didn’t want to work inside another summer; but I also wasn’t the most avid hiker or the most outdoorsy person. I never tent camped before in my life, I had never held a tool in my life (does a butter knife or fork count?).

I came to MCC from an application found in an environmentally focused job list online. I’d never been out west and had a low key obsession with trails and the idea of mountains. If I’m being honest, I didn’t know what to expect when I dropped out of the life I was living in Michigan to move out to Montana.
