THE GRAND TETONS - Sunday, August 15, 2004
Today I'm itching to go on a long road bike. Talking with Lindsay the night before, she informs me of a really nice bike ride to Signal Mountain. The route runs just east of the Grand Tetons, promising ample opportunities for many Kodak... er... Nikon moments.
I depart on my ride late in the morning. The weather is threatening rain, so I pack my rain gear and say a little prayer, an Indian anti-rain dance of sorts. All told, the ride takes me close to 50 miles, and in the process I experience no rain (yea!) and grand views of the Tetons. The ride up Signal Mountain is a doozy, but with a little determination and grit, I make it to the top in short order.
Upon completion of my bike ride, I jump in the van and head to Cody, Wyoming. Getting there takes me back through Yellowstone National Park. Unfortunately, night sets as I make my way through the eastern reaches of the park. Too bad, the elevation gains and losses I experience during the drive signal interesting but hidden terrain.
1:30am rolls around and I finally reach Cody, Wyoming. I immediately park the van, jump into bed, and quickly drift off into deep sleep.
