I felt like a four year old dragging my feet through the sand and pouting despite the fact that I was in one of the most beautiful places in the country and had just witnessed a breathtaking sunrise at Delicate Arch. One of my friends was visiting from the east coast, so on my much-needed day off I agreed to spend the morning in the park and found myself regretting it immediately.

The National Park Service does a great job of providing on-site housing for their seasonal volunteers and employees. Here at Arches, my roommates and I share a beautiful house that is surrounded by giant red rock cliffs and includes a backyard that features an array of desert life including our own juniper tree and an adorable rabbit that we’ve affectionately dubbed Marcel.
