Yellowstone Winter Photography Safari

Post 1 – There is a quietness during our first week in Yellowstone.  We find ourselves alone on many of the trails as we find new ice formations, colors and shapes emerging from fog, and somehow the scenery just feels a little different.

How we have enjoyed beginning and ending our days traveling through an amazing wildlife corridor.  Each day we looked for the illusive bobcat and yesterday we were treated to a half hour session of photography.  In the last 2 days, we found a pair of eagles, elk enjoying a meal in the river, swans in gorgeous light, coyotes and more.
