The landscape could use some freshening up, and the falling flakes made some of our stakeouts quite beautifu...

Re: Winter 2020 Trip Report, Days 0-11 (Jan 11-22)

Thanks Rick. It’s definitely been my best winter trip ever, and I’m pretty sure we’re having my best winter tour ever (still one day to go to ruin it all, though! ;)).

For all the right reasons, that is. I was rather pleased when my clients voted to skip Old Faithful and the thermals on our final ...

Even from a distance, the sight of so m...

Today was my last free day before packing up to go fetch tour clients. I intended to spend only a half day in the park, and that’s all I got. Bu...

Re: Winter 2020 Trip Report, Days 0-5 (Jan 11-16)

Dorothy, thanks.

Rick, supposedly people have seen this one on and off in recent weeks (or they’ve seen a badger, at least). First winter one for me, and the last time I remember folks getting prolonged photo ops with one in winter was two years ago. It’s definitely an uncommon sight.

Re: Winter 2020 Trip Report, Days 0-1 (Jan 11-12)

Linda, people were saying it’s the Wapitis. I did not see the alpha female. I counted at thirteen... a dozen that went up over the hill and a gray that lingered behind. Not sure if the black that was there later was part of the first group or not, so there may have been as many as fourteen that I sa...

It’s been a couple years since my last winter visit to Yellowstone. Gone are the days when we’d make the trip out after Christmas each year (at leas...
