Last week was a bruising week of meetings and travel with an inspiring day at the end.
Mondays are always full with meetings. This Monday, I met with DOI senior political staff; FWS Director's staff; and others to review the previous week, catch up from the weekend, and prepare for the week to come.
After an evening flight to Las Vegas, on Tuesday morning I joined the NRCS Chief and USFS Deputy Chief in addressing the annual conference of the National Association of Conservation Districts.
I spent a short day on the ground, but by nightfall, I was already flying back home for work the next day.
