I worked outside at the golf course and I usually ended up closing most nights. There I saw some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen and I had a front row seat.
These, most definitely, were signs of God’s glory, as well as going into the park at night to watch the stars, or watching a thunderstorm rage across the Badlands.
I did not feel prepared going into Medora, however that is okay because I don’t think there is anything that can prepare you unless you just do ACMNP. The first two weeks are terrifying, because you don’t know anyone there but you will get the hang of it.
Leadership was bred out of this because I wasn’t able to sit back and let people lead me by the hand. I had to take initiative and responsibility if I wanted anything to get done. For example, if we wanted to have a movie night we had to get out and spread the word. And we had to track down the people in the NPS office to get the paperwork done.
