Photographer's Note

Having had a short break from TE after the Christmas and New Year holidays I thought that another post from Yellowstone in winter taken in January last year would be fitting.

The road from the West Yellowstone entrance follows the Madison River and beautiful winter scenes such as this one can be seen along its length. Access to Yellowstone National Park is restricted in winter and specialist tracked vehicles have to be used. Within the park lies the Yellowstone Caldera which is the largest super volcano on the North American continent. The park is well known for its geothermal features but it is also an ecosystem that contains beautiful sub-alpine forest and meadows, canyons, rivers and lakes. The wildlife is diverse and adapted to the harsh winters. The extreme cold and challenging conditions in winter make this an exceptionally wonderful place to visit.
