Yellowstone in the winter is all about snow, cold, and survival.  Feet of snow blanket the mountains and sagebrush valleys in the park, making it easier to spot wildlife.  While it does get extremely cold, -23 is the coldest that I've encountered, with most days hovering just below zero.  Wildlife of every kind is all about finding food.  Buffalo push the snow aside with their heads, bighorn and elk paw at the snow to get to the buried grasses, moose and deer are browsing the willows and trees, predators like coyotes and foxes are digging in the snow at carcass sites, otters and eagles are hunting the fish along the few unfrozen sections of river. Eating is survival.

The bottom line is Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons deliver the greatest winter wildlife photography experiences in North America. On the fourth day of the safari we travel to Jackson for the Grand Tetons part of the safari.  I am an authorized and licensed Yellowstone National Park Tour Guide.  If you participate in this safari, you can participate in the Utah Raptors Safari for FREE (Jan 26-28).  (LINK to Utah Raptors Safari)

Reservations   For those not traveling with me, we meet in Gardiner, Montana just outside the northwest entrance to Yellowstone, just north of Mammoth Hot Springs.  I expect every type of weather during these seven days.  I expect snow storms, wind, clouds, and blue sky days.  You can never tell from weather reports exactly what we could see, but its that type of weather that creates amazing images and illustrates how these animals fight for survival during the winter.

Difficulty Level:  EASY  -  Little to no hiking, a little walking, cold temperatures.
