We’ve had two great volunteer experiences. Our first was a two month stint at Grand Canyon National Park where we worked in their emergency services branch building a continuity of operations plan for the park and helping out as needed on emergency calls and other odd tasks.
We’re now enjoying the warmth, color, and freshness of summer. In the past few weeks, we’ve picked huckleberries and blueberries to make freezer jam, enjoyed fresh heirloom tomato salsa with fresh sweet peppers (and a few jalapeños!), and even had the air conditioner on for a few days. Not bad for two people who thought Spring would never end!
Our photos are now being marketed by age fotostock (Spain), Alamy (UK), Dreamstime, Fotolia USA, and BigStockPhoto stock distribution agencies. New technology has come our way in the form of a Nikon D700 camera body and an 80 to 400mm zoom lens.
What’s to come? We’re taking the cameras and heading for Boston for a fall color New England cruise – our first time at cruising! We don’t have to write a report, wash dishes, or anything. It is time to be pampered!
November sees us loading up the trailer and driving south to once again volunteer in the National Park system. We’ll be back at Grand Canyon with stops at Canyon de Chelly, Zion National Park, and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Who knows what adventures are in store for us!
