It poured all though the night. The rain pounded the roof of the cabin once again and woke me about 2 a.m. It still has not stopped. The alarm went off at 6 a.m. and we packed the car and left to take a last drive in the Park.
   There were the usual bison lining the road - they are such hardy animals - and a few deer. Otherwise, all was quiet except for the rain. A good day to leave.
   We never escaped the rain. We turned around and headed out of the Park. Near Trout Lake a cow moose grazed on the hill. She may be the cow we saw trotting east across round Prairie early Monday as we entered the Park.
   The Beartooth Highway was open, but snowy. At times I could not see the line running down the middle of the road, the fog making visibility worse. I drove very slowly, gripping the steering wheel. It will be another time when I can fully enjoy the country's most scenic highway
