Season's Farewells

I have had such a great time working for the Park Service. I have learned so much and have gained skills I will use for the rest of life. I have met some amazing people and am truly glad that I got to share this experience with some of my friends. It has been a great summer.

I've had an amazing summer here at Kenai Fjords. I'm so happy that I had the opportunity to be a YCC. I learned so much about my local area. How did I not know these amazing things about the Seward area? Everyone was so helpful and fun to work with. Thank you all for a great season!

I see the change occur
the park is not as it was."

"Fireweed blooms in the mist
I see the glacier reflecting it
the season is ending"

End of Season

Well for me anyway.

Working here at Kenai Fjords National Park has been a great experience, educationally and mentally. Through this program I've learned so much about wildlife/vegetation/and the glacier more than I would at home. Mentally, this job has helped me improve my people skills. They weren't very good, I'd say. Now they're better. Everyone have a fantastic rest of your summer!

Hoary Marmot

The Hoary Marmot is the largest member of the ground squirrels. These guys hibernate half or more of their life away. They have very thick fur and a substantial fat layer that protects them from the cold. You are not as likely to see them on hot days as they hide in the shade to keep cool.
