In the last post I wrote about getting out here, but I don’t think I wrote enough about what Sam is doing.
He’s had an internship since September with the Maui Bird Recovery Project, which I linked to in the last post. Here’s their Facebook page – give them a like, and a donation if you’re so inclined. Sam has spent a lot of time in the field planting trees that support the bird recovery. He and his crew are helicoptered in to remote areas and plant seedlings of the trees. His internship is almost at an end, and in late January he’ll go to Crested Butte Colorado where he’ll work until the spring and he goes back to Salida, CO, as a river ranger.
He’s had housing as a part of his internship, but for the 2 weeks of Christmas and New Years he’s had a housesitting gig in a charming place just outside of Paia, HI, which is near Kahului. It is in a beautiful setting, and today’s post is simply my afternoon walk around the house. If I had the mad camera skills (and the mad camera) of my girl Suzy Q. Steen I could do a better job of capturing all the beauty, but you’ll have to settle for my iPhone wannabes.
Happy, happy, happy New Calendar!
Thanks for reading!
