Snowshoeing today!

I’m Sarah on the Mountain again!

Paperwork just came through, I’m officially returning to Mount St. Helens for year #5 as a park ranger, only this year I’m moving up to the big leagues and working on the north side of the mountain and staffing the visitor’s center!  I couldn’t be more excited to start my new adventure!

Let’s just politely ignore the fact that I spent my first three seasons thinking the north side was evil and I’d never work there… I’m stoked!

Cheese!!! I made cheese!!!!

This was my first attempt at cheesemaking, and it was awesomely successful. I used just organic milk, organic cultured buttermilk, and sea salt, and from start to finish, the whole process took about three hours. Now I have a big pile of delicious creamy ricotta!

Parks and Plates- The Geology of our National Parks, Monuments, and Seashores, by Robert Lillie
This was waiting for me in the mail when I returned from my Thanksgiving travels to Kansas.  Very excited to read!
Apparently, good things (like free books) happen when you chat with awesome geology professors at interpretation conferences.

I just got back from a two week road trip with my best friend to Yosemite, Reno (for a conference on interpretation, not gambling), and Lake Tahoe.  It was AWESOME!
