Hello everyone, this is a quick update to let you know that I’m still alive.
Over the past month, my crew members and I have been working with the City of Boulder’s Open Space & Mountain Parks (OSMP) division to repair their vast system of trails, perform ecological restoration, and to install a new trail.
The work has been challenging – both physically and mentally – which partially explains why you haven’t heard from me in so long.
More significant, however, is the fact that I don’t have much of an internet connection.
The internet in my OSMP-supplied house is for work purposes only, and is quite poor. I’m also living under a set of strict, COVID-related rules that prevent me from going to places where I might be able to use public WIFI.
This means that I won’t be able to do much blogging until I’m done with my AmeriCorps term. Despite this, I’ve been keeping detailed notes of my time in Boulder, and I have a few post drafts ready in case I find a way to reliably access the internet.
To whet your appetite, here are a few photos from my first month in Boulder:
Thanks for sticking around during this unusual period, and I look forward to being able to interact with you all again.
