tales from the west side: backbreaking work and late-nite antics, hikes to avalanche lake, polar bear plunges, boxed wine and blanket forts with grown-ups...

but these are outdated. by now our cleaning crew has moved east of the continental divide and back into the snow. it's blizzarding again, and i'm living in a plywood box across from st. mary lake. strange times.


apgar village, glacier national park, MT


at home again in glacier national park.
cleaning hotels on the west side of the divide, the park all to ourselves!



there was an elaborate easter dinner, three days late, with some extra thanksgiving fixins.
there was a surprise snowstorm!
there was one final hurrah on the ski slopes, skiing in slush with my hand in a splint.
there was a mayday breakfast picnic on the living room floor: bratwurst and good beer and a hike up mt. helena.

today was my last day off. shortest off-season ever. tomorrow i drive to GLACIER.

happy mayday folks!
