It’s winter in Yellowstone
Exhaled breath creates a steam cloud in front of the face that lingers and then drifts away in the windless air. Gradually it evaporates and disappears. The frigid air is a wakeup call to the senses. Stepping out into the winter landscape at Snow Lodge in Yellowstone National Park is an incredible experience.

It’s winter in the park. There is snow on the ground – lots of it – but the sidewalks have been plowed or shoveled.

It is early morning, and a path leads to the Upper Geyser Basin where Old Faithful is expected to erupt. The dry snow squeaks under boots. A small crowd is already standing around, quietly chatting, in anticipation of seeing Old Faithful.....

My wife and I visit Yellowstone regularly, including a winter trip a couple years ago. I have photos but have a look at this youtube slideshow just posted today by a regular at yellowstone.net chat.

Thank you for the youtube link. Love the Moose photos and the looking down at the bear ones.

Haven't been as regular as I would have liked.

And it's something I'm not gonna repeat soon.
(too many things haven't seen and want to do in the Sierra)
Heck, couldn't even recognize Ill. Falls so better go back there when its a flowing.
(although saw that angle of the dange from Washburn a month ago)

And when hiking in Yosemite one doesn't need to worry about being attacked by bears!
