- Dream Job
Researching and teaching in some capacity, travelling the world
- If I could pass a law…
I’d make recycling the law of the land.
- The person who inspires me post is…
Bob Ross, painter & personality of yore.
- If I were a shape-shifter, I’d turn into…
a bison. Bison are strong-willed, resolute, and composed – qualities I admire.
- Most memorable outdoor moment
My most memorable outdoor moment took place not in Grand Teton NP, but in Yellowstone NP. While out and about in Yellowstone for the day, I witnessed an unforgettable scene before me: bison, by the tens, laying and resting. Some were wallowing in mud pits; others, grazing quietly. All were breathtaking in that understated, unassuming way of theirs.
