16 Jun First Week After Training
Posted at 18:14h in Blog 0 Comments
Hello! This is my second week working with the YCC Vegetation crew at the Grand Canyon. The first day went fairly smoothly. We started getting rid of a number of invasive plants in the vicinity, approximately 6,662 plants known as jointed goatgrass. I also got to meet other coworkers who I’ll be working with for the next few weeks. This past weekend, my father and I went out for dinner at the Bright Angel Lodge and found a ring-tailed cat lurking around the pipes trying to snatch packets of sugar from the restaurant. It was unlike anything I have ever witnessed before. I also got to go on a hike and see well preserved fossils in the Kaibab limestone.
