|| Called Trey at Mobility Plus about warning lights--they
disappear when we start out. Beh complains about her first mountain
driving to Laramie. Chinese food next to the Motel 6 we couldn't
get inthe night before--damn. I spot antelope, but Beh doesn't
see them. She starts handling mountains well and won't give up the
wheel. She loves Dubois with its new wood rustic, tourist town look.
Finally spot a herd of antelope running uphill. Beh gets only a glimpse.
Marvelous scenery and the Tetons in the background. At the gate to
Grand Teton Park, my Lifetime Pass is at home. I fake it, and they
let us in free. A buck came down the mountain on my right, fast,
landing on the road and losing his footing, before I could warn Beh.
She braked hard, and he got up and bounded down the hill to Jackson Lake,
30 feet away. Beh wanted to stop, but I urged her on, grateful that
we just missed him. The Yellowstone fires had bared a steep canyon
going in. Beh, afraid, didn't look. I was on the bent rail
steep side, oozy from fatigue and glad I wasn't driving. Grant Village
on Lake Yellowstone was beautiful, new, and very accessible. We wheelchaired
down to the Lake House for a pasta buffet. We watched cutthroat trout
pick hatching larvae off the water, then relaxed for the outdoor amphitheater
show at 9:30. The trails were totally dark, and Beh was scared, but
I finally heard a loudspeaker as we arrive just as the slide show was ending--I
wondered why they held it so late! A flashlight shined ahead of us
on the way back. Idon't know who was holding it. I preferred the
dark, cool, moonless night.
