Photo of the Day – Mt. Lassen

Lassen National Forest, California
December 23, 2009

It’s hard to work when you’ve got a view like this.



Confirmation came tonight that I’ve been hired by the Forestry Service in Northern California.  I’ll be heading out Sunday to perform archaeological surveys in Lassen National Forest.  It’s a temporary gig, but I’m hoping it will blossom into something more.  It’s been great to spend a bit of time in Watertown after being away for a year.  I’ve made new friends, reconnected with old and enjoyed every bit of my time here  I won’t forget a single moment of the past three months; thank you everyone.

I think it’s worth mentioning California was the first place I ever wanted to move.  I was eighteen at the time and the cliches of the West coast had me beyond hypnotized.  Ten years on, I’ve shaken most of them off and I’m finally getting a chance to try it out.  Though, I still want to watch the sunset over the Pacific.  Some things you’ve just gotta do.

Talk to you from California.
