I tried to make my stay valuable to the Park. I am a dogged advocate and supporter of the NPS. I had a great chat with Suzie and Steve as they departed this morning as well.
Not sure if there is any way I would have the resources to donate more time to them, but I want to look into the Park Volunteers! These are the backbone of the place. So much of the park is run on nothing but love and good will.
I came home with over 3000 photos and have hundreds of ideas in my head how to use them.
There is no telling what the donation will be but I hope to spend a few days in October delivering it on my trip to Denver.
I am not as bottomed out as I was before, even though the morning was a bust.
I tried to see the new babies at the tree on the south exit but they did such a great job of camouflaging their condo, that I could hear the babies yelling, saw one of them dive in for breakfast feeding but could barely see a nose a couple of times and NOTHING else.
I guess when I get back they will be hovering over me, hopefully giving a little guidance.
So I will take the advice of the sign below and STOP and let it all sink in.
YES I will update.
There may even be a chance to participate in Holbrook Wild West Days in July. Doubt it could be as hot as here, and I really miss the wind already.
