Yellowstone’s Winter Wonderland

Today’s post includes some more images made along our ride in the snowcoach, from Mammoth Hot Springs to Old Faithful, during the winter of 2011. These images were made near/along the Firehole River, as we neared the Old Faithful area. This area has a lot of thermal pools and geysers in the area and thus offers a wonderful, wintery view of steam-engulfed landscapes.

As awesome as Yellowstone is in the summer, winter is one of the best times to visit … if you can withstand the cold and harsh conditions!
