A Winter Weekend in Yellowstone National Park
One -15°F day in Yellowstone National Park, I was one of the few braving the cold. All was quiet and blanketed in white. Snowflakes were falling, steam was rising from the thermal areas, and frost was settling on everything nearby.
Including the bison I saw emerging from a warm bath of hot spring steam.
I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to witness this magic.
The next day, while on my way to go snowshoeing, I stopped to wait for a great herd of bison to cross the road. A pair of bison at the back of the herd felt like they were getting left behind, and ran to catch up. This moment was so worth braving the subzero temperatures and blizzardy conditions...
