“You take people, you put them on a journey, you give them peril, you find out who they really are.”
― Joss Whedon

The invasive crews took a hitch to Northern Idaho this week, and camped in Hellsgate State Park outside of Lewiston, ID, on the banks of the beautiful Snake River.
Highlights of the hitch included: bald eagle sighting, beautiful orange and cloudy sunsets, exploring a roadside cedar grove, crossing the Washington state border, seeing a roadkill bobcat up close, and loads upon loads of native/invasive plant information.

YCL Trails Training

It was crazy to learn that there was such precision when it came to crafting the perfect trail. This allowed me to better appreciate all of the trails I have been on, as well as understand the hard work and thought that goes into each and every foot of trail.

Our project sponsor was Don Galvin of the BLM, someone who we would grow pretty fond of through the coming weeks.  It’s always great to have a project sponsor who has a healthy arsenal of one liners to lighten the mood when the going gets rough.  The thing about Don, he might be giving directions to the project site or explaining that grizzly scat could be easily be identified by an abundance of bells, whistles, and a strong peppermint odor but his demeanor rarely changed.

As I pen these words we have been three days in the Montana wood and now make our travels towards the Yukon.

Idaho, Summit, and The Bob

April was jam-packed with travel for the Eastern Wildlands YCL’s (as is every month for EW).  From trail training in Idaho, to summit at Camp Mak a Dream, to backcountry training in the Bob, we certainly earned our stripes as road warriors.

It had been a long time since my boots hit the soil of the mountains of Idaho. I spent nearly a whole season there last year. I had never expected to fall in love with it.

Sleeping in my tent for the first time since last October brings a feeling of home that I didn’t realize I was missing.

So this common conservation path is what inspired me this week. Seeing other young individuals continuing down a similar path as the one I have chosen makes me believe I am involved in something bigger than myself.

Hello everyone out there in the internet! We here at the western wild lands MCC regional office are getting CL season started off with a bang, or maybe a cold engine rattle, it was around like negative 6 a few weeks ago round here. But the leaders of the “WW” all made their way here to Missoula, driving through the mountains and cutting through the snow. Great group, I can already tell, lots of smiling faces and unique stories.  Like the other regions we started things off with our leader retreat, snow shoeing, getting into lessons and program orientations, and all spending our nights in a cozy little cabin. On that note, our cabin retreat could not have even had a cabin without the fine folks of the Five Valleys Land Trust, thanks again guys!
