Fall in the Cascades

It’s that time of year again… The park traffic has slowed and fall colors are starting to show. We’ve already had snow in the high country.

At Ohanapecosh, that means MUSHROOMS! The berry crop this year was sad – the season, weather and moisture regimes were really not the average. But there has been some really nice Chanterelles found in the lower forests. Most of the ranger folk around me like to hunt for mushrooms, and I’ve taken many late afternoon walks looking for these prizes. 🙂


Trying to Get Back in the Saddle

It’s been a long time since I posted an entry in here. It’s been a long summer at Sunrise and Ohana. And it’s not over for another 2 weeks (for me). Lots of projects need attention, as well as getting ready to move to Colorado for the winter.

I’ll post pictures of my summer home soon. And I’ll get back to writing in here within the next couple of weeks!

Ranger Jen is alive. 😉
