I got except for a 5 month position with the US forestry Dept in Medicine Bow as a volunteer with a small stipend. It will be from May until the end of Sept. I also have an application in with the US forestry Dept in Sawtooth. Im waiting on approval because I will have a dog with me and I will be living in an Alaknak tent. I will be working 4 days a week and backpacking the rest.
I love Sawtooth. Its one of my favorite places in the US to backpack. With Sawtooth I also get to hike the White Clouds and Frank Church wilderness. I have never been to Medicine Bow but I hear it is similar to Sawtooth. With Medicine Bow I get the Wind River Range, Northern Colorado, and The Big Horns and Maybe the Tentons.
Originally was going to Alaska but changed my mine. Also thinking about putting in some applications for Oregon but I dont know much about the area. I know OregonMouse might recommend some national forests
