Winter Wonder Land: Yellowstone

Going to Yellowstone National Park during the winter is one of those “bucket list” items everyone should experience. I had my opportunity earlier this month when Dr. Charles “Chuck” Peterson, a biologist at Idaho State University, coordinated a private snow coach trip. We had a 1950s era Bombardier tracked machine that looked like it should be on the battlefield! Fun! In total, there were eight of us, plus the guide; four biologists and four photography professors. Days were cold, near 0oF (-18oC) and nights were even colder!

Three life-long friends from the Kansas City area and former faculty colleagues at the University of Central Missouri, flew up for the adventure. Unknown to Wilson Hurst that Tom Mitchell and Robert Breshears were going to be there, it came as quite the surprise when he finally met them during our rendezvous!

Here’s a number of my favorite shots from the trip. I used a variety of gear, including Nikon D800, Fujifilm X20, and my iPhone 7 through a spotting scope. Enjoy!
