Claire Carpenter roams the streets of Yakima on a green bicycle, reciting poems to herself.   In her wilder days, she once spent a winter at a research station in Antarctica and a summer on a sailboat in the Galapagos Islands.  Now she teaches biology at Yakima Valley College and raises goats and boys and free-range vegetables.  She wanders sagebrush-covered ridges with her dog, dreaming of future adventures.
