Yellowstone Winter Safari                          Thursday, January 4-6  $750  ($600)

Winter is an amazing visual experience in Yellowstone National Park.  The park is cloaked in feet of white snow, turning the camouflage of summer sagebrush into a flat field of snow where every animal movement can be seen. The Yellowstone plateau is cold, ringed by mountains that contain cold air driving down temperatures well below zero every night and on some days.  My record is -23 below a few years ago.  Animals struggle to survive and this leads to carcasses, so this safari is much more of a predator shoot.  Wolves, coyotes, foxes, river otters, and eagles all prey on the wintering elk, bison, and bighorn.

I expect every type of weather during these three days.  I expect snow storms, wind, clouds, and even 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 these animals fight for survival during the winter.  The bottom line is Yellowstone delivers the greatest wildlife photography experiences in North America.

We meet in Gardiner, Montana just outside the northwest entrance to Yellowstone, just north of Mammoth Hot Springs on Wednesday night, January 3.  There is easy airport access from Bozeman, Mt for those flying in.
