Shadow Mountain, Grand Lake - "Here I Am! I Stand at the Door and Knock"


Here I am!  I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Approaching Storm Bridger-Teton National Forest

We drove down Antelope Flats Rd to Gros Ventre Road into the entrance of Bridger-Teton National Forest.  A Storm was approaching so plans to explore the area and drive to Shadow Mountain was postpone.

Beorn's Song Shadow Mountain


Sung by Beorn

The wind was on the withered heath,
but in the forest sirred no leaf:
there shadows lay by night and day,
and dark things crept beneath.

The wind came down from mountains cold,
and like a tide it roared and rolled;
the branches groaned, the forest moaned,
and leaves were laid upon the mould.

The wind went on from West to East;
all movement in the forest ceased,
but shrill and harsh across the marsh
its whistling voices were released.

The grass hissed, their tassels bent,
the reeds were rattling-on it went
o'er shaken pool under heavens cool
where racing clouds were torn and rent.

It passed the lonely Mountain bare
and swept above the dragon's lair:
there black and dark lay boulders stark
and flying smoke was in the air.

It left the world and took its flight
over the wide seas of the night.
the moon set sail upon the gale,
and stars were fanned to leaping light.

"The Mountain" - Excerpts of Poem by Robert Frost

"The mountain held the town as in a shadow
I saw so much before I slept there once:
I noticed that I missed stars in the west,
Where its black body cut into the sky.
Near me it seemed: I felt it like a wall
Behind which I was sheltered from a wind.
And yet between the town and it I found,
When I walked forth at dawn to see new things,
Were fields, a river, and beyond, more fields.
The river at the time was fallen away,
And made a widespread brawl on cobble-stones;
But the signs showed what it had done in spring;
Good grass-land gullied out, and in the grass
Ridges of sand, and driftwood stripped of bark."

By Robert Frost "The Mountain"

Storm Clouds Gathering at Shadow Mountain-A Colorado "Black Sky"

These are raw images of storm clouds gathering over Shadow Mountain and Grand Lake. Shadow Mountain is an appropriate name for the darkness and chilly winds.
