One of Yellowstone’s Jewels

Today’s post features another geyser near Old Faithful, in the Biscuit Basin. The Jewel Geyser is a small, but rather active geyser, erupting frequently (every 8-9 minutes is typical). Although the eruption reaches up to 20 feet, it is nowhere near what Old Faithful offers (100 – 180 feet). Jewel Geyser has a shiny, beaded […]

Today’s post features some more images I captured in late February in Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming). The mud pots featured in this post were located in the Fountain Paint Pots area of the park, near Old Faithful. One definition I found of the mud pot is that it is a sort of acidic hot springs […]

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 […]

As the free-ranging Bison forage for food, they swing their large, muscular heads side-to-side to remove snow from the […]

A Howling Good Time

While going through my large volume of images in my library, I came upon some images that brought back a lot of memories. In 2008, I made my first of several trips to Yellowstone National Park in the dead of winter. While most of the park is closed this time of year, road crews work […]
