He enrolled at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO for a couple of years, and then went to Adams State in Alamosa, CO where he had to drop out due to finances. He worked at Mesa Verde National Park building trails and all sorts of manual labor. He enrolled in the military reserves and continued to pursue his education, but worked at what he could find. He went back to Mesa Verde and fought forest fires there, in Utah at Monument Valley, and at Yellowstone National Park.
