Hey all! Katie here; unfortunately, writing for the last time. My time on St. John has come to an end. I’m headed back to the Midwest to continue work, look into several graduate school opportunities and in June I’ll be headed back to the Middle East to continue work at an archaeological site I worked on last summer. These past months I’ve had an incredible time doing archaeology with the National Park on St. John! I’ll miss it; but most of all, I’ll miss the people I’ve met and worked with during my stay. Ken, Rafe, Susanna, Jeff, everyone at the biosphere, the volunteers and everyone at the Friends of the VI National Park office, thank you just doesn’t cover my gratitude. I owe you all for giving me this spectacular opportunity. I’ve learned and experienced so much; from metal conservation and operating fickle Trimble GPS equipment, to report writing and making a tent home. Thanks for the memories everyone!
