Ooops. Mont Blanc had an avalanche.

So long-time, faithful readers (read: my mother) will remember that I briefly flirted with making a winter attempt up Mont Blanc while I was living in London. I had a hard time finding a guide and getting a crew together (plus Kili whooped my sea-level-living butt) and I ended up not going. It looks like a month a go an avalanche hit and killed at least eight people. It struck right on the trail. Yikes.

To switch gears from that humbling news, we just arrived in the surprisingly cool town of Boise, ID. I can chalk up a new state on my list. We're riding in Fat Tire's bicycle parade tomorrow...so I'd better get out to the bars for a long night of rest. Wait.
