As the season of MCC Western Wildlands comes to a close, I can’t shake the feeling that one of these days I’m going to get a message from my crew leaders: “Meet at the office at 6am tomorrow. We’ve got to be at the North Fork Ranger Station right when they open in the morning.” But that message won’t come.
