MONCK PROVINCIAL PARK - Merritt BC - Summer 2011

The gate - Monck Park - Merritt
At the moment I am in the office of the gatehouse using the internet.  My status (or lack of it) allows me to have the password for the internet and keys to the gatehouse.  I am all alone as we don't open the gatehouse much except weekends until the high season begins.

Things are all working out.  The other hosts are getting friendly with us.  Last night we were invited to their campfire.  Today I baked bread for them and today one of them is going to let us watch the final Canucks' game on the satellite.  I hope it's the final.

I feel pretty confident that I can do the job on my own on my first full day shift on Saturday.  There are always two outside staff around the park and I just have to call them on the radio if I run into anything tricky.

Just a picture of Parker.  A regal animal isn't he!

I, too, am looking forward to the stories. Be sure to keep notes on all the stupid questions you get. :)

Good luck on Saturday. Can't wait to hear how everything goes. Don't forget to take some pictures around the campground. Love to see the place!
