It is hard to believe we’ve been here in Grand Canyon National Park (or GRCA as it is known in National Park Service “lingo!”) for six weeks – two weeks to go!
Most of our work time has been at Station 1 in a large conference room -but we spend time at the trailer for uniterrupted time (except for the ravens, bees, and “oh, do you have internet?”). While we are both able to work at the dinette table in the trailer – we have a great outdoor workspace.
The best part of wrapping up the Continuity of Operations Plan we are writing, has been the opportunity to photograph training exercises. Whether it is a team being lifted off the ground by the helicopter, carrying injured away from a bus crash, to lowering a litter over the canyon rim – we’ve caught the action…
Check out my favorite “patient!”
Who knows where we’ll end up from here… we’ve been approached by several visitors to GRCA to do the same thing at their park… we’ll just have to see how it all works out!
But for us… two more weeks here… three weeks at home… and it is off to Churchill Manitoba – We’ll be basic laborers there… but for that adventure, we’ll wash dishes and do food prep all day long just to see a polar bear and the beluga whales!! Stay in touch!!
