- 12.19-22.21 : Traveling around Yellowstone in style. In winter the park’s roads are snow-covered and closed to regular traffic. Snow Coaches are outfitted with massive tires pressurized to just 14psi, allowing them to float across the top of snow.12.20.21 : Moody skies and bison (pic 2) from the Hayden Valley overlook at Trout Creek. This 50 square mile valley is known as one of the best wildlife viewing locations in the park.12.20.21 : Looking into the depths of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River from the Grand View overlook just downstream from Lower Falls. The yellowish 1,200 foot walls are what the national park is named for.12.20.21 : Up close bison viewing during our Snow Coach ride from Old Faithful to Canyon Village. They like the ease of road travel as much as we do. Sound on for hilarious commentary from our tour group on the video ;)12.19.21 : Beryl Spring is one of the hottest features in all of Yellowstone, with an average temperature of 196F. Its erupts nearly constantly, and the steam coats the surrounding trees and boardwalk in a thick layer of rime in winter (see pic 2).12.19.21 : The definite wildlife highlight of the trip was when nine members of the Wapiti wolf pack crossed the road and wandered alongside us for about a mile. The sighting happened just south of Norris Geyser Basin during our snow coach ride between Mammoth and Old Faithful. Second pic is all nine on the road in front of us.
