Immersed and In Tune

It is nearing the end of our second off-hitch and two of my crew members and I returned from a 3-day trip up Moose Bridge and back to Moose Creek Ranger Station. The 20 mile round trip hike started with a steep climb up Grizzly Saddle until we made it to the beginning of the ridge. From there we meandered along the ridge that gave us beautiful views of the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness in all directions. The rocky Bitterroot Mountains paralleled us to the east as we hiked south toward our destination.

We spent a full day lounging and swimming along the shore of the remote alpine lake. I felt incredibly lucky to be able to spend my off time in such a beautiful place and with amazing friends. Being immersed in the wilderness does wonders for the soul. The benefits of immersion and MCC as a whole are becoming more and more clear to me. I am beyond excited for a summer free of distractions and the ability to become more in tune with my thoughts and feelings.

Back at the Ranger station, I am tasked with preparing for the upcoming hitch. I look forward to another nine days of beautiful views and hard yet extremely rewarding work.
