Chaparral dreamin' ⛰
I've been working out here for about 4 years now, and I still have a lot to learn. When you spend so much time in these mountains, you get to see how the land changes and adapts to drought, rains, mudslides, erosion, and fire. •
Things will recover over time, and new growth will come sooner than expected. •
I love hearing from the community, and listening to their stories about their adventures in the park. I think everyone is excited to watch the park recover, and create new memories 🌱
Made a new friend at the Dana Point Harbor Boat Parade of Lights! 🧜♀️ #happyharbordays
The goal was to do more portraits this year. It didn’t happen. I’ve grown to that point where I feel like I’m being rude or insensitive if I don’t spend time getting to know someone before asking to take a photo. Yes I’m calling it growth 😊 Here’s to more portraits in 2019, in studios or outdoors, of friends and strangers.
The person in the photo is Mr Iyang, a park ranger at the Finima Nature Park. I was blessed to have him act as my guide during my visit. Blog post on the Nature Park will be up next week.

Ruta 40 I will miss you. (But not yet cuz my flight was just cancelled) 🏍
After 14 years at the Village Bryce our well loved and respected Maintenance Manager is retiring. Many of you will know in the and recognise Bryce, and is love for animals and kids (having bought 6 kids up on his own) For his way with our guests and his hard work in building the grounds and facilities we are forever grateful 🙏🏻 He and Lisa are off travelling in their Winnebago for a well earned break and Paul takes over the keys to the show. Travel safe guys 👋🏻✨

It’s only Thursday??? Finals week got me like....😴
Joy. Relief. Exhaustion. Satisfaction. Success.
Sparrow hawk obviously making the most of our bird feeders! #parkranger
Have been workin off sleds last couple days, one of the funnest parts of being a BLM ranger are all the different, modes of tranportation you get to use. I believe life is fuller when you're learning new things, i'm fortunate to have a career that helps me do that. #parkranger #mypubliclands #colorado #learningisliving
Our success with Rally for Rangers Patagonia would not have been possible without our amazingly talented team from @motodiscoveryadv
Nice to have some company from my friend and RNLI crew mate @coco_bean77
today at work. He is on annual leave and asked if he could volunteer for the day. Eased him in gently with slow burn tasks in the morning just to break him in then after lunch it was full on path maintenance! We managed to dig up a path that had become over grown and to narrow. #parkranger #conservationvolunteers
