I've been in Seattle for a little over a week and am about to fly out to re-start my studies in Vermont. It's been great not wearing 5 layers to bed every night and having a shower and fridge full of food at my disposal.
Climbed Rainier, did some scuba diving in the Puget Sound... all in all, a relaxing time before I get swept up by college life.
My last several weeks in Alaska are almost over. Below are some pics of what I've been up to in the latter half of the guiding season. Soon I'll be flying to Seattle and then back to college in Vermont. I'm trying to enjoy my last moments of freedom as much as I can.
Life has been steady here at MICA. Below are some pics from the season so far. My tent (with the two broken, duct-taped poles) is still holding up, I haven't been trampled by the moose that visits my tent at night, and my anchor-building skills are improving.
a long, overhanging route that's killer---one of my favorite
Quick update so the chronology of the following post makes sense: I flew to Seattle from Borneo, took a 10-day Wilderness First Responder course in Bozeman, MT, visited Yellowstone (i'm not a fan of the crowds of people everywhere), packed everything back into my backpack and flew up to Anchorage to start my summer job.
