Yellowstone thermals by Nancy Richard

Hot springs at West Thumb in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming surface through heavy snow. The park presents a whole new experience in the winter season.

I am deeply concerned about environment, wildlife, and animal welfare, feeling a strong commitment to leaving the planet in better shape for new generations. Therefore, I support a number of charities that reflect those interests.

I have a degree in English and Library Science, but if I had my life to live over, I would have loved to have been a photographer, writer, and/or National Park ranger.

    I’ve heard a lot about Yellowstone, but I’ve never seen it. Looks great in the winter, too!

  • We hit Yellowstone at 13 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit below freezing. So if you ever decide to do it, bring plenty of thermals and warm clothing. It was a once in a lifetime experience. My husband says no more going north for the winter, but as a former skier, I still love snow. We’ll see. Thanks, Laurie!

  • Correction: 20 degrees below ZERO! fahrenheit.

    Stunning!!!! Going to Yellowstone in the winter and snowmobiling around to get photos is a dream of mine to do someday.

  • Actually, Ann. I prefer the snow coach, which is a better environmental alternative. The snowmobiles are intrusive and disturb wildlife which is already stressed. They are limiting snowmobiles now, and though I’m sure they’re fun, I chose the snow coach option. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment.
