Dusk in the Grand Tetons

images from Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, March 2010

Two days of driving from rain-forest fern-and-moss greening to winter dusk in the mountains. Two days of dry roads, racing ahead of the next weather front. Two days of disturbed sleep, probably from the altitude; I seem to be more susceptible to altitude sickness than before. Finding a place to sleep, then rushing out to meet the last light over the mountains. Return from greening to deep winter cold and snow.

Post card picture perfect.

Back to the cold again, Art and now with additional altitude. You are a brave man indeed.

Boy, do I envy you that trip. On the other hand, maybe this will nudge me to plan a trip of my own like this.

Elizabeth, well, tonight it was freezing fog: half-inch horizontal icicles on the leading surfaces of my truck. I stopped early because of it, and am spending a "night off" in a hotel in central South Dakota.

John, let me know when and where you want to go. I'm good at planning trips for my friends. :)

It's like that verse from the Joni Mitchell song "Hejira":

People don't tell you where they've gone
They tell you where to go
But till you get there, yourself
You never really know.

I took that to heart. So I tell people where I've gone. But I'm good at details. :)
