Greetings Eva, Marilyn, Palmina,and Paul, Thanks for visiting and all the wonderful comments. The winter makes Yellowstone so very special. I have never seen anything like this before. Lots of snow, sure. But to have this much snow with all the steam and geysers was just unbelievable. Yellowstone is a must visit for winter travel. The sunlight plays so well through the steam and the steam can be used to frame so many shots. And the Bison are beautiful and majestic. Yellowstone is magic.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Bruce, If you don't take a snow mobile tour in from West Yellowstone or Flagg Ranch you will be totally at the mercy of Xanterra. Take a tour and request an old Bombardier Snow Coach. A throw back to yesteryear.

Enjoy,

Rich

Excellent reflection, and this transitions in colours. I like much this picture, YS. Olga

Greetings Olga, This is in Biscuit Basin of Yellowstone National Park. The thermal activity keeps the ground warm and the snow is thin and melting off. The buffalo can dig down to the grasses easily and find something to eat during the long winter. It stays a little warmer for them. The water in the river is fed by hot springs so it never freezes. The fog makes it look prehistoric.

Cheers,

Rich
