Okay, so it's been a long time... So long, in fact, that I am now 2500 miles away. Don't worry; it's just for the summer. And hopefully when I return, I will have all kinds of new insight into what makes the STL so killer. Until then, read about my current (mis)adventures on my new blog Frontier Dispatch.
Here's a preview, in pictures:
Hiking in Arches National Park, Utah
A geyser pool at Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
Riding my bike on the Route of the Hiawatha from Montana to Idaho (through lots of pitch-black tunnels and over trestles)
The trials and tribulations of a night at the rodeo, Columbia Falls, Montana
Hiking the Danny On Trail, Big Mountain, Montana (view of Whitefish and Whitefish Lake)
