Happy New Year!
Now that the forced holiday cheer is out of the way, it’s time to get down to business. By “business,” I mean an announcement that is likely of zero consequence to your lives.
My crucial announcement is that I’ll be resuming the series of posts about my AmeriCorps term in Colorado.
For those of you who are new to this blog – and there is a suspiciously high number of you – in 2020 something happened involving a virus. Since it looked like I was going to lose three jobs, I applied for and got an AmeriCorps position in Colorado. I then spent most of the Summer and Fall of 2020 building trails and performing various ecological-themed tasks for the City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks department.
I started writing about my experiences in Colorado, but then I stopped. Now, two years later, I’m going to continue it.
Fortunately, I kept a journal while I was in Colorado, but I stopped maintaining it in October: coincidentally during the same week that my crew and I had to evacuate due to a wildfire. This means that all posts after October 23 will be based on memory, and probably a lot of embellishment.
If you’d like to get caught up on my Colorado series, I’ve included links to some of the posts below. I doubt that I’ll recount my time in Colorado as throughly as I did Belize, but I’ll try to include the good bits (like the time when I had to fight a moose – see the comment about embellishment above).
