Unsung Heroes

November 05, 2018 Posted by: Ranger Steven

The Road is Always Open

November 05, 2018 Posted by: Ranger Nathan

The family Subaru skidded down Bowman Lake road on washboard gravel. “Shoot!” I hollered. The Forester was more familiar with Missouri roads. The old fly rod I’d snagged from a local thrift shop kept flicking into the window behind me. “I’ll get that for ya.” I cracked the window and the tapping stopped. “I needed some fresh air too.”

 

Lessons from Fall

November 05, 2018 Posted by: Ranger Erica

“Start cold,” I was always advised when it comes to hiking in the fall. I always remind myself of this as visible breath comes out of my mouth while I brace myself to the chilly morning air. My skin is cold and covered in goosebumps, but I know that I will be warm pretty much as soon as I start hiking. It’s ok to be uncomfortable sometimes.

A Love Letter to the Reynolds Creek Fire

August 04, 2015 Posted by: Ranger Dawson

Fires are both awesome and awful. They change our landscapes in ways some of us could never imagine; what was once green is now black, what was once dark and damp is now full of sunlight. The lush paradise we’ve all become so familiar with transforms into an almost alien landscape.
