Yellowstone Winter 2018

Post 2 – Scenery What can be more enchanting than sparkling snow and the cool colors of winter. Snow also simplifies an otherwise busy landscape and adds a new creative element.

As time went on, animal behavior changed.  Lower temps and snowfall made for some dramatic scenes.

The snow was falling so hard, the 3 light colored wolves were barely visible.  This one came back for a little more food and then we watched them disappear into the whiteout like ghosts.  It was very special just to watch this action.  The coyotes and bobcats like to walk along the riverside, hoping for a duck, swan or rodent to catch for dinner.

OK! I think it is about time to leave.  I won’t argue with him!  (oh how I love my long lens and safety of being inside a vehicle with the window open) We’ve had enough of the snow anyway and it is time to fly south.

So here we go… We will arrive in Costa Rica tomorrow night and do look for some photos on the next blog in a week or so.  We’ll try to warm you up a bit with some hummingbirds and flowers after all of this snow and ice.

Our first stop, our first morning, our first group this January produced an amazing sunrise opportunity along the Madison River in Yellowstone National Park.

We’re still watching an approaching storm.  The forecasts are very promising!
