Visitors are often surprised to see a law enforcement ranger greeting them at the visitor center front desk, but that's what you get in a park this small. At the impressionable age of 12, Sara (sb) met the ranger living at Keet Seel in Navajo National Monument and thought that was the coolest job ever... and now she is living that dream. When asked how she handles working and living in the middle of nowhere, her response comes easily: "Look at my office and backyard."
