24 Hours in Yellowstone National Park: Winter 2013

Winter in any of America’s National Parks is always amazing. In the Olympic National Park, occasional snowfall makes the rainforest seem surreal, with whites and greens contrasting off of each other like nowhere else in the world. In Yellowstone National Park, where I am lucky enough to be for for a few awesome days, winter is a snowy utopia. In Yellowstone, animals are active and easily seen, the mountains are spectacular and life seems perfect.

 

If you haven’t seen Yellowstone National Park in the winter, you really need to take a trip out here. The following pictures are just a small sample of what I was lucky enough to see in the first 24 hours of my visit.

WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE?

We shall see what the next 24 hours hold. Maybe wolves, maybe snow, maybe we will see something that has never been seen. Who know! Until then, be safe, stay warm and plan your 2014 hikes!
