faces_of_the_parks My mother always told me to find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life. Working for the National Park Service made that dream come true.
I am an interpretive Park Ranger at Isle Royale National Park and feel extremely successful in my work. It's an island in Lake Superior and is considered part of Michigan. I am proud to wear the grey and green and I hope to do this for the rest of my life.

On my days off you may find me out on the lake fishing, kayaking, or hiking on the backcountry trails. On or off the job, I enjoy connecting with visitors and hearing about some of the fascinating experiences they have had while exploring other National Parks. If you are visiting the island this summer make sure to say hello! - Ranger Kaitlyn (@kaitlynknick)

christysands Today in history: We set up camp at Daisy Farm to kick off a week of epic backpacking on Isle Royale. I don't know about you, but I would take this over a mansion any day... Also, it's crazy how fast a year goes by.

marslarson Ate lunch on the Mt Ojibway fire tower and hiked 11 miles today. Shorts and t-shirts for the first week on the rock is such an amazing thing. #isleroyale #isleroyalenps #puremichigan 3d
