As we’ve done in the past, Mr. Tattered and I try to travel in the shoulder seasons, while the kids are still in school, so it will be a little easier on the parentals.
We’ve long wanted to see Yellowstone in the winter, and when we discovered Road Scholar had a trip listed on their web-site, we jumped on it.
It was a quick trip, but tons of fun. I swear it was as cold (maybe colder) than Antarctica, but we had all the cold weather gear for it, so that helped.
Let’s see if I remember how to do a photo-driven blog, and let the off-beat photos speak for themselves for the most part!
As soon as we got into the park we were in a buffalo jam!
These are reflections of people staring at the drops of water – super cool!
Yes, it was that cold!
Even through a tattered lens, you have to have the icons…Old Faithful
Geyser Basin, just after sunrise
Discovered that you can take a photo through the scope, then blow it up!
Yes, it’s a male moose. My first. NOT GOOD, but I’m taking the win.
I’m fascinated with the sun peaking through the snow-covered trees, can you tell?
And, last, but not least, an ice overhang.
