Got back to Star Valley on 23rd of Sept.  Getting a little cold and the most everyone has exited the park.  But the deer are plentiful.  Kim and John are still here for for some 4 wheeling.  We head out on the 28th, but the jeep couldn't make the trail that the side by sides could, so we just did some exploring on our own.  Hadn't been up to Granite Falls this year.  Last year they had a big fire in that area and we wanted to see how far it had advanced.
