Overcoming Bloglessness

Apikuni Falls and Many Glacier

1 Comment

We celebrated my husband’s birthday with a visit to Many Glacier valley and lunch at Many Glacier Lodge, which is now my favorite of all the Glacier Park lodges.

But first, a hike to Apikuni Falls.  It’s only a mile long, but with 700 feet in elevation gain, we were stopping often to catch our breath.   We made it!

Apikuni means “Far Off White Robe” in the Piegan Blackfeet language and is the name give to James Willard Schultz, a white man who married a Piegan woman (Natahki) and lived with the Blackfeet.  Schultz authored 20 books, including My Life As An Indian which is one of my all time favorite books.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  1. Beautiful! I have a cousin in that neck of the woods. Every year we say we’re going to get up there to see him . . .
