After a 7am-ish breakfast, the day began with the one-mile drive to St Mary Lake overlook.

Nothing ventured nothing gained. Rather try and fail than not try. i dared a 15-year old to jump in ice-cold water at Virginia Falls with the caveat that i’d do it too. He didn’t take the dare, but i’m glad i dared him. Maybe next year.


Note to self for posterity: 08.01 Monday…St Mary Lake before breakfast, 10am Little Chief boat tour to Baring Falls, hike to St Mary Falls, then hike to Virginia Falls, boat back at 3pm, saw bear, relax at room and lobby for wifi, dinner Two Dog Flats, Logan Pass for three hours, dessert at Two Dog Flats…PS dared Chapin to go in cold water up to neck. Maybe next year.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
