October 25, 2007Sierra is such a big, playful, tender and gentle sweetie! Exploring Yosemite with him is a magical experience. I can't think of a better reason to fly somewhere in my plane, than to come visit him, wherever he may be.
April 26, 2005There's something about Sierra that the first time I saw him in person I thought he was the most joyful-looking person I'd ever seen. It was ironic, because he told me that he wasn't feeling particularly joyful at the time. But I will always think of him as being joyful, and I suspect that thinking of him will always bring me joy. We spent some extraordinary time together at Short Mountain Sanctuary in the summer of 2004, and you know, I remember very little of the content of our discussions--just the soulfulness of our time together, and my expanded appreciation, as a homebody, for being outdoors, looking at growing things, and immersing myself in an icy stream... I am very grateful to him for sharing his day with me that day.
I am a free spirited traveling, hiking, outdoor adverture loving guy. Nature is key in my life on many levels. I LOVE being in the mountains. I like good connections with people, and exchanging massage and other healing arts. I appreciate the love, prosperity and abundance the mother Earth provides for us. I believe that a joyous and prosperous life is what we are here for, and I always remind myself of that when we as humans get in that space of struggle, depression, or sadness. My current work with others includes teaching young people about nature, ecology, and how to be good stewards of this home in space. Its great work! While I am back at Mount Rainier this summer, I am gearing up for a career change, personal guiding in the wilderness for queer men!!
Something that spilled out of me onto the keyboard one day: "Faeries gathering like a spiral galaxy Light Eagle and Sierra spinning the rainbow light arms of the spirals interacting faerie spirits alive, future and ancestor, coalescing into love light gathering strength in celebration of earth's transformation. "

My three months of experiencing Los Angeles and its outlying suburb Thousand Oaks has been a good experience for me. I have discovered that there are cool people here on the queer community, and that there are many gay mens outdoor clubs and organizations here. In my attempts to quicken my pace of life to run along side the busyness of city life, I have the gift of clarification for me in what I want in a partner. There are many who love the outdoors and nature, There are gay men like mysel... read moreMon, March 30, 2009 - 9:57 PM permalink - 4 comments
The past few weeks have been very exciting with my anticipation of working at my next national park, Glacier Bay, Alaska! Mount Rainier had a sort of funding disaster, and my job there was not available to me this year. I intuitively knew this, so I put some effort into applying for other park service jobs, and I struck it rich in being awarded a prestigious position in the field of interpretation -- being a naturalist/interpreter at Glacier Bay Alaska. I will be based in a small town that... read moreSun, March 15, 2009 - 7:56 AM permalink - 5 comments

Thanks for letting me share my heartsong here on Tribe
I have been really enjoying my work with Mt Rainier National Park and doing my craft of guiding the people that visit in such a way as to help them find the deeper meaning the mountain has for them, and to help them get the most out of their visit to the Sacred Cathedral named Takhoma. I feel love f... read more
I am over halfway through my 7th summer season working in the beauty of the great mountain of the northwest. It has been a trying summer here being new at my managerial role, my favorite housing being closed, and the general drama I allow for myself of feeling like this is a dead end job. There is a chance of a promotion from being a seasonal ranger (no pay increases health or retirement benfits) to a permanent rated position. I talked with one of my supervisors this week, and she in so ma... read moreThu, August 21, 2008 - 11:14 PM permalink - 3 comments
Last week, I accepted an offer to return to my summer home of sacred Takhoma, Mount Rainier. This time I will be the lead interpretive ranger at Sunrise. It feels good to go to a place I am very passionate about living and working, as well as return home after being gone for 2 years. The Naraya for me will feel better, as after this year's dance, I will be going home to Mount Rainier. Last year's dance felt a bit out of sorts with rushing south the evening after the ceremony closed. Thi... read moreThu, May 15, 2008 - 12:04 AM permalink - 4 comments
