Yellowstone in Winter
This February, I traveled with Natural Habitat Adventures for a week long journey from Bozeman, Montana to Jackson Hole, Wyoming viewing the winter vistas of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. It was an amazing adventure I shared with fourteen other travelers and my outstanding guides, Jared and Colin. Seeing our nation's first and grandest national park shrouded in snow and having the privilege to share this special place with its wildlife is an adventure I will never forget. The beauty and the majesty of Yellowstone often matched Antarctica's pristine panoramas and being able to observe wildlife in its natural state reminded me of my time in the rookeries of Antarctica. While the goal of this trip was to observe the wolves who have been reinstated in Yellowstone, our experience was varied in terms of wildlife, landscape, and nature. My adventure culminated in Jackson Hole with an Iditarod ride into the mountains. As you can imagine, the pictures of my team of dogs are my favorite, and it took all my will power to not return home with more additions to our pack.
