The Gatekeeper crew just began their third hitch — they’re up at Golden Gate State Park where they’re building trails and camping out for five ten-day spans this summer. Here each Corpsmember and their Crewleader share their favorite part of the summer so far.
Erik Vande Stowe: Building a rock wall.
Sophie Calandros-Savoie: Forming friendships.
Jeri Ho: Seeing the stunning views from the bluffs and the stars at night.
Mike Colson: Ice cream visits from staff members.
Bryan Trasvina: Being outdoors.
Eric Lohmeier: Home cooked meals every night… I’m eating better here than I ever did at home. The best meal so far was the cheese and chocolate fondue.
Mike Mullaley: Cutting down trees everyday.
Heather Curry: Food! We had chili one night that was so awesome.
Nicole Hurd: Seeing a hummingbird.
Sierra Lammers: Meeting everyone and hanging out, we have a really good group dynamic.
