Can you believe it? We will close Canyon Campground three weeks from Sunday. It seems we have just gotten open, and now we have to start getting ready to close.
That's the one negative about working at Canyon...the short season. However, Bill and I will lengthen our season by moving to Madison Campground and working September 9 - October 14. It will be like a vacation for me, as I will be working as a GSA...just checking people in and out.
Today is the last day of our three-day weekend. As a Manager, once a season I am able to take a three-day weekend. In the past, Bill and I have always gone camping. This time however, we have done things a little differently. We returned the pop-up to storage, went to Bozeman to do shopping for Christmas (in Yellowstone we celebrate Christmas on August 25) and to buy the DVDs and cases needed for the year-end movie Bill and I have been working on. We have gotten lots done, and it's been relaxing. I think I'm ready to go back to work tomorrow. : )
With just three weeks left, we are entering the home stretch. Of course between now and closing things will be busy. As mentioned above, we will celebrate Christmas in August, have a movie night, and the thing I'm most excited about is my mother and aunt will be visiting! They will arrive on September 2 and stay for a few days. It will be fun playing tour guide.
Sorry I have no pictures to post. Let us get to Madison, and I'm sure we'll have time once again to get out and play and to take some great pictures!
