Third time’s a charm. After two previous attempts, finally summited Mt. Adams this morning. And of course, upon reaching the second highest peak of the Pacific Northwest, waiting for me was a spectacular view of the highest. Fuck you, Mt. Rainier.

This season is coming to an end here for the Mt Adams wilderness crew. I am so thankful to have served with each of these amazing people who took me under their wings and taught me how to be a wilderness ranger. The things i experienced will forever make me a better person and a better outdoorsman. And the friendships made will last a lifetime. This wilderness ranger crew makes a massive impact on preserving the designated wilderness areas within the Gifford Pinchot and these last completely wild lands would be lost if not for the hard work and long hours dedicated by these fine humans. Thank you for this life changing experience that I will be forever grateful for! #mtadamsinstitute #americorps #vetswork #wildernessranger #wildernessculture #mountainlife ...

KCD is sad to be losing the amazing Krystal Hedrick, who has accepted a new position as GIS Mapper with the Weld County Assessor’s Office in Colorado.

She served at KCD over the past year through Mount Adams Institute VetsWork, an AmeriCorps career development program for military veterans who want to work in natural resources management.

As a forest technician, Krystal brought passion to her work on KCD’s North SeaTac Park restoration managing a KCD WCC crew to remove harmful invasive plants and prepare the site for reforestation efforts that will improve the park’s ecosystem making it more resilient and beneficial for local wildlife.

It’s always been my dream since hiking the Appalachian Trail to somehow make climbing mountains my job. Lots of hard working on the mountain this weekend but some of the most rewarding work I’ve ever done in my life. I must thank the Mt Adams Institute for giving me this opportunity. #vetswork #mtadamsinstitute #americorps #forestservicelife #veteran #mountainlife #mountaineering #wildernessculture ...

This lucky jersey calf gets to grow up on pasture and will be milked twice a day. She will primarily eat grass, and only eat grain when milked. I have come to be a huge supporter of organic dairy, especially the organic valley label which is a farmer owned cooperative. #cascademountainschool ...

The Wilderness crew at the Mt Adams ranger station got to do some joined training with the US Army’s Yakama Dust off search and rescue crew today. It was a major learning experience for me especially learning this from a rangers perspective. These are the guys that come rescue critically injured people from the remote wilderness areas of these mountain in Washington.
