I received a gift today...a token of the larger gift of having had the unique pleasure and privilege of being one of the caretakers of this, one of the most amazing lodges in Idaho's backcountry.
I had only an idea of what it would be when we accepted the position, and everything about it exceeded my expectations in an overwhelmingly positive way.
My biggest take away is that while the Lodge is new, Big Creek is very old, and has a history as rich as the ground she sits on. To the local people, the Forest Service and the pilots that care for her; the people who come to rest, eat and refresh here; the Idaho Aviation Foundation and all who contributed to her rise from the ashes..THANK YOU!
You have given me the experience of a lifetime in getting to know you and serve you.
Thank you Mark Feifarek and Janie Sigler, my team mates...you rocked!
The list of people to thank is much too long for this post, but I think y'all know who you are!😉 And to all of you who I haven't met who support this beautiful place...Thank You!
It was hard to leave, for I left a piece if my heart there. But I'm happy to say that Mark and I will be back next year to continue the traditions and to perhaps start some new ones!
