YELLOWSTONE IN WINTER
GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK
13 - 19 February, 2014
With park roads closed to auto traffic, access to Yellowstone National Park in winter is restricted to snowcoaches and snowmobiles. Those few who make the extra effort to visit Yellowstone in winter gain a perspective of the park denied to summer visitors. Accented by crisp winter air, billowing clouds of steam rose from boiling ponds and geysers; waterfalls are frozen into giant ice sculptures; trees are frosted with elegant ice crystals formed from frozen steam. In the solitude of this winter landscape wildlife congregates near the thermal areas: bison, elk, bighorn sheep, otters, coyotes, swans and more.
