During winter I’m a vegetable. I hunker in and spend way too much time online which saves me from spending much money.
Come the much desired spring I return to work as a seasonal Park Ranger at Grand Canyon National Park, the North Rim.
Actually I leave Yarnell’s flowering spring.
To find winter still clinging to the Colorado Plateau.
During training the staff hikes rim-to-rim, north to south.
This year will be my fourth crossing.
Summer is my favorite. Flowers start to bloom in June and subtly change through July on the canyon’s rim.
I greet visitors from around the world who come to see one of the Seven Wonders of the world, Grand Canyon.
Summer monsoons bring the gift of life.
And wildlife abounds.
Rangers get paid in sunsets.
When the leaves change colors and fall my work season is over.
And I return to Yarnell where this winter I’ve been living in the little house with Mike.
So the seasons start again.
