sunnyside up

things have been going much better. Had some time to get off the ranch and i think that really helps.

Friday morning I worked our cookout we do on the top of shadow mountain. It was gorgeous out and one of the wranglers rode my favorite pony Tank up. I went to go feed Tank a snack, but it seemed he had the same idea and had already untied himself and was eating some wildflowers.

Most everyone gets off work early on fridays so after the cookout we all went down to the Gros Ventre (grow vant) River to drink some beers and swim.

 Unfortunately for my poor little Florida body I was unable to get my entire foot in the river since it was so cold.

On the way home we drove past a pretty large bison herd and stopped and watched them for a little while. Kiwi, Rhet, and I also decided to go the scenic route to the beaver pond on the way home… but once again, no beavers. I keep meaning to look up their living styles to see if maybe they abandoned their lodge, or I keep going to see them at the wrong time of day, but I keep forgetting to.

saw a little bear on the way home too. First one i have seen. He was pretty far away but it was still neat to watch him bounce along the hills.

It was one of the best days ever.


Saturday was also great! worked the morning shift and went camping after work. Just went down one of the park roads off the property so that people that had to work in the morning could still come and hang out by the fire and go home early. Just a handful of us ended up staying the night, but its always great to sleep under the stars.

The mosquitos here are the worst I have ever seen, but on the bright side they only seem to be active at dusk and dawn. Flys also started to come out a week or so ago, pretty disgusting little creatures. Never would have thought the bugs would be worse here than at home.

Went hiking by myself in Granite Canyon on Sunday. Was gorgeous, but everywhere here is, and it wasnt anything too spectacular.

Nothing too exciting except a bee tried to pollinate the top of my head for atleast a mile of my hike. Very happy that it did not decide to sting me. Went out to eat at a place in Teton Village afterwards called the Mangy Moose. just a little touristy place.

The person at work i can not stand was offically demoted yesterday, we have a new server, and a set schedule (and i really lucked out with it). I only have to work with her once a week now. So things at work are going much, much better.

Went out to Cuttys for wings last night (i still do not eat wings if you were wondering), and today is payday!
