It's Official

I got the job. I'm leaving the end of June to go work for the summer at Sperry Chalet.

I can't tell you how excited I am. Yes, it's completely hike in. Yes, it's totally remote with no cell phone, no Internet. Yes, it's surrounded by mountains and glaciers that I love and yes!!! There are no cell phones or Internet.

Did I mention that I'm excited as the day is long?

I have wanted to do this for years and everything just kind of fell into place this year. It's such a great opportunity for some serious exposure to the backcountry of Glacier. I will be working every day of the 11 week season but there is still time to hike during the day, at least a little. That is one of my goals this summer, to hike EVERY day. Other goals include being a hard worker and a good example, with a positive attitude and sunny smile but hiking every day!?! Can you believe it???

Eeeee gaaaaaads!!!

I'm in heaven!

YAY!! And more yay! I'd use more caps and exclamation marks but I'm afraid it would get old, fast.

Oh, to hike everyday... now I'm totally jealous :) Congrats!!
