Yellowstone in Winter
January 15, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am| Free
Winter in Yellowstone means fewer crowds, frigid temperatures, and steaming geyser basins. Skis, snowshoes, snowcoaches, and snowmobiles become the primary modes of transportation as roads close, rivers and lakes freeze, and snowstorms transform the park into a winter wonderland. Restricted vehicle access and limited services makes winter visits challenging. Every year in early November, most park roads close to regular traffic as we prepare for the winter season. The only exception is the road between Mammoth Hot Springs and the northeast entrance, which is open to regular traffic all year. Once enough snow accumulates (usually by mid-December), roads open to “oversnow” travel only. This means the only way to visit Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and other popular destinations during winter is by guided snowmobile or snowcoach, or through our non-commercially guided snowmobile access program. Over snow travel ends in mid-March, when our plowing crews begin clearing a winter’s worth of snow. Roads start re-opening to normal cars in mid-April.
David and Diane Reesor. David became interested in photography when his parents gave him a Brownie Hawkeye camera for his 8th birthday… his obliging parents allowed him to make a dark room in the family bathroom. David has gone beyond the Hawkeye camera and with his digital knowledge is able to put together a ‘show’ that is very creative as well as instructive. You will definitely not be bored! Diane came to the world of Photography after she met David. Her interests include the people, flora, architecture details and abstract aspects.
A 24×36 color photo suitable for framing will be raffled off to one lucky patron!
