I spent a day at the Hamilton Middle School judging the 7th and 8th grade students’ science projects.  We had a posse of judges, but we were still no match for the volume of projects that we held up against our rubric.  There was a mixed bag earth science section, a chemistry section, a biology section, and a physics section.  With Newton’s Laws and the Scientific Method in mind and rubric and pencil in hand, I waded through the aisles of poster boards and kids ranging from three to six feet tall talking about their physics projects.

I underestimated how much you learn about yourself just by swinging a tool and working with your hands. I did not realize how much I would grow just by moving dirt.

When I was home for my brother’s wedding, my mother and I began talking about all the things I have missed over the summer: pool time, figuring out graduate school, and even training for my next race.  The list went on.

Logan Pass is one of the most surreal places I have ever been; and I was so happy to be able to experience a place like that at least once in my life.

You wouldn’t expect to end up in a traffic jam on the rural roads of Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, but there we were, sitting in the rig behind 250 calves.

An ad released in a St. Louis newspaper, February 13, 1822, by William Henry Ashley, began the process of western expansion and the conservation of western lands.

Trail work in the Wilderness is something else. It must be passable but you don’t want it looking like a trail in a National Forest.


After four days of painting and installing fencing, we were all pretty proud of the work we all got done.

Fences for boundaries are just important as replanting willows. So is creating places for people to sit out and enjoy the outdoor in comfort.


The views were amazing, even if we only saw one small brown bear and not a single Grizzly.

For the second time we were set out into the Wilderness for trail work. This time though it was in the Great Bear Wilderness, which was the home of the largest population of Grizzlies.
