The only VSBN challenge I didn't get done was
Antarctica, so wanted to finish this one even if it was late.
journaling: We spent a day driving across Montana, Idaho and into Washington, such beautiful wide open and sometimes very desolate country. When we drove up to see Mount St. Helens, I had no idea how beautiful yet sad the whole story would be. It was so cold and windy at the lookout points and would have been very easy to stay in the car, but I knew we’d never be back this way so had better go see it for myself. We spent some time at the Visitors Center which helped us understand the timeline and enormity of the eruption. It was great getting back to the hotel and turning up the heat and soaking in a hot tub. October 30
