Chilling Duet

With today’s continuing snow and frigid temperatures here in the Missouri Ozarks, I thought this winter scene from a few years ago in Yellowstone NP was very appropriate to feature! While driving the snow-covered roads in the Lamar Valley, we came upon a pair of coyotes who began serenading us with a chilling duet: Our […]

Yellowstone Coyote hunting

When we left the Old Faithful Snow Lodge, heading back to Mammoth Hot Springs, we were fortunate to see some wildlife along our snowcoach ride. This post includes some images of a coyote that was hunting close to the road. Since the coyote was so close, and we didn’t want to frighten him away from his hunting activity, the snowcoach pulled […]
