Well, yesterday we had ourselves a little mini-road trip all the way up to metropolitan Rexburg. Part of the deal with selling the Sammi contingent on us delivering it to Rexburg. No problem--we had to go to Rigby anyway and Rexburg is only another 12 miles farther north. While we waited for the buyers to arrive from Jackson, we drove out to Beaver Dick Park. This is a small riverside spot operated by Madison County. Beaver Dick was a real person--actually a genuine legend in his own time. Jenny Lake in the Grand Teton National Park is named for Beaver Dick's wife. Beaver Dick's life was filled with extraordinary hardship and tragedy. It wouldn't surprise me someday if Hollywood made a movie about Beaver Dick. He was truly an amazing person. Unfortunately, there aren't any readily available online biographies of Beaver Dick. Author Cort Conley perhaps wrote the best available story about him but that's only available in print. There are a few factual errors in this account by Ken Hughes but it is a good beginning.
