What a magical summer it was! I was the happiest I had ever been in those West Texas mountains. Who would have suspected? Although it was painful to leave, I know I'll be back visiting soon. My last night in the park the rangers threw me an impromptu BBQ and my heart (and tummy) just about exploded from being so full. What a warm sendoff. I guess it's a beautiful thing to be sad to leave somewhere because you realize how important it was to you and the course of your life. I was lucky to have met such passionate rangers and visitors during my GUMO. Thank you for everything.
