Ranger Kathryn's Arches

My 200th post

Blogging becomes a way of life for us bloggers. A day without blogging is a day without documenting, exploring, or looking more deeply into our experiences, and today is a milestone: Post #200. Two hundred times I have sat down at my laptop to record what is going on in my Utah life. Two hundred times I have not known whether anyone but me is reading. The reality is that it wouldn’t matter a speck to me if I am my only reader; this blog records my ranger experiences mostly for my own remembrance. Inviting others along on the journey does, however, make it even more fun.

Sometimes, out of the blue, a thoughtful comment appears after an entry. Or, as happened Saturday, a stranger from Minnesota stops at the Visitor Center desk to see if “Ranger Kathryn with the blog” is working. (Thanks, by the way! I wish I could have visited with you!) Or, a Facebook friend admits to following the blog and loving it.

I’ll keep sharing, keep photographing, keep writing about my awe at the Utah part of the universe and at this amazing life journey. As for you: read when you can, comment when you’re moved. Thanks for coming along with me. Wish you were here.


  1. Man. Kath. You are my idol. You embrace Life and Blogging in one! You are never the sole reader of your blogs, I assure you. A highlight of me logging on to my computer each day is seeing whether there’s an update from Arches. Now, do NOT let that turn into an obligation… but just know that bunches of us live vicariously through you. Your words. Your experiences. Your “Joy of Life” (sorry, don’t know French!), and your teaching folks about the precious resource you have there.

    GON! (as Dad would say.) BLO —– GON!!!
