Do you like flowers? Then the Alpine is definitely for you! – As I said before, I am from sea level. I’m used to being around beaches, sand, and water. I grew up fourty minutes from the harbor, and to this day, my aunt and I still go there to buy loads of the best fish on the coast. However, I’m actually considering moving to Colorado because of the wonderful and diverse plant life. I’m extremely happy that my project involved studying vegetation. For one, I get to stare at beautiful yellow and white flowers almost every day. My personal favorite? Erigeron Simplex – the purple daisy. I’ve never seen one in my life until earlier this month, and I’ve fallen in love with them!
I really do love it up here on the alpine. The wildlife, the flowers, the people – everything is amazing, and quite new to me. Getting paid to look at cute animals and awesome plants was never in my life plans – but I could definitely see myself doing this again!
