Push on through. Life in Yellowstone can be harsh but Spring is in the air. •••••••
Thank you Jake @revealedinnature for showing off the beauty of Yellowstone. ———-
Winter Wildlife Feature I -
Featured first on this series of posts highlighting wildlife and their unique strategies for enduring Yellowstone winter is the bison. Two key assets equip bison to survive in this unforgiving climate.
The distinct shoulder hump on their back, which is actually a protruding muscle, allows them to function as a 1 ton, living snow plow. Unlike other ungulates, such as moose and elk, which scrape with their front feet to access food under the snow, bison use this muscle to rock their massive heads back and forth exposing grass and sedge buried under several feet of snow. Some bison will opt out on this “snow-plow” technique, preferring to graze alongside thermal features where the warm steam from geysers or hot springs melts the snow on the surrounding grass.
When violent winter storms hit, prompting other wildlife to seek shelter from the chilling wind and blinding snow, bison just plop down where they are and wait it out. Their winter coats are so thick and well insulated that the falling snow doesn’t even melt on their back. In a heavy snow, you can watch the largest land animal North America vanish before your eyes in a matter of moments.
Camping has got to be one of my favorite things to do. Missing @yellowstonenps but will be back next year! By far the best campsite is Slough Creek. We saw bears, coyotes and bison right by our campsite and heard the wolves at night. 😍 that is heaven to me. .
Lower Yellowstone Falls in Yellowstone National Park.
Yellowstone Falls consist of two major waterfalls on the Yellowstone River. As the Yellowstone river flows north from Yellowstone Lake, it leaves the Hayden Valley and plunges first over Upper Yellowstone Falls and then a quarter mile downstream over Lower Yellowstone Falls, at which point it then enters the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, which is up to 1,000 feet deep.
Cascading from the 590,000 year old Canyon Rhyolite lava flow, Lower Yellowstone Falls is the largest volume waterfall in the Rocky Mountains, and the falls are 308 feet high; nearly twice as high as Niagara Falls.
Sorry it’s been so long since we’ve posted anything. We had almost no service in Yellowstone, and not much anywhere around it. But what can ya do. Most of Yellowstone was closed when we got there because of the ice on the roads. We were still able to see the Serengeti and Old Faithful and whatnot before we left.
THEN our wheel bearing on the van broke in dang Jackpot Nevada. But now we’re good, WE MADE IT TO CALIFORNIA! I’ll post more pictures of the animals we saw in Yellowstone, in a little bit. 🦉🦌
THE STAIRS. Uncle Tom’s Trail and Uncle Tom’s Point are now open. The trail descends a whopping 328 steps down the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone to an excellent view of Lower Falls. The views on the way down and at the bottom are worth the workout.😁 #YellowstoneForever#Yellowstone#YNP#hiking#YellowstonePledge
What a difference a day makes. After getting distracted by the eagle yesterday, and hence my lost opportunity for an epic moose photo (see previous post), I awoke at 4am with a new sense of determination. >
The drive to my favorite "moosey" spot in Yellowstone is roughly 2.5 hours away near the northeast entrance.
Which illustrates how massive the park is considering the west side of the park is just 20 miles from our little town of Big Sky, Montana. >
I arrive just before sunrise, and I’m greeted with a breathtaking, and frosty morning. >
I ready my tripod, and pour myself my first cup of coffee, preparing for what could be a long and very cold morning. Taking in the scene before me, I see a sleeping buffalo, steam rising above him. I frame my first picture, but my thoughts immediately drift towards Tanner. You see, buffalo have a special place in my heart. Tanner was headed to the University of Colorado and was excited about being a Buff. I choke back my emotions, look to the sky, and before the tears form something above distracts me. My watery eyes focus on something soaring in the sky. As I watch the bald eagle land in a tree behind me I take a deep breath, and with a crooked smile I say, “not today Mr. Eagle, not today.”> I turn back around to the Buffalo, and refocus on the thick tree line. My goal for the day: moose, bear, or if I’m really lucky, a wolf. But under no circumstances birds. > Within 30 minutes I see movement in the trees, and shortly after a huge bull moose appears. The moose strolls over to the large pine only 30 yards from the bison. I smile and take a photo. Within a few minutes a second bull moose waltzes out and begins to tussle with his buddy, locking antlers. I now have before me, a steaming bison and 2 bull moose underneath a large pine tree in Yellowstone Park. And before I press the shutter button, and if on cue, a bald eagle lands atop the pine. I stand there mesmerized and conclude, only in Yellowstone Park. #onlyinyellowstone#wildlifephotographer •
Bison (Bison bison) are the largest terrestrial animal in north america, with the largest wild bull ever recorded weighing an impressive 1,270kg (2,800lb). While they once numbered in the millions, hunting caused them to suffer a near complete population collapse. @yellowstonenps is one of the only places where they have lived continuously since the last ice age, and as such the conservation of this area has been crucial to the survival of the species. These incredible creatures are majestic, resilient, and surprisingly fast. Have you ever been to yellowstone or seen a bison? More yellowstone photos to come soon!

Sateenkaaren eri sävyissä loistava Grand Prismatic Spring. Eikä ihme - onhan tuo kuumavesilähde aivan valtava.
