Ah, the winter desert was beautiful to walk through and the sunsets were spectacular for this gypsy life. Yet as spring approached I knew it was time to head back to the Northwest and return to work as a cave guide at Oregon Caves National Monument.
Oregon Caves Chalet houses the Visitor Center & dormitory above. (Sorry the pano is contorted, the building is not bent.)
When I arrived in March there was still snow.

Carson and I went hiking after work almost every day; the forest was right outside our door.

Sometimes I’d hike on the monument where he couldn’t go along.

As fall approached I decided to stay as a volunteer at Oregon Caves.
