My time in the PFNP exceeded my expectations tenfold. I was encouraged to express this magnificent park through my eyes and ears, and given a supportive environment in which to work. It was, without a doubt, the fastest two weeks of my life.
My adobe across from the PDI was a haven of solitude with friendly faces always a short walk away. The sunrise out my door would allow me to see all the animal tracks from the starry night before. The wind was the only sound in the air until the birds chimed in. I am a truly lucky person to have been chosen from so many talented applicants. And my hope is that PFNP likes the work I created as much as I do. It is rare I am so happy with a final product.
