Buck the trend and come to Yellowstone this winter! Not only are the cold months beautiful and laden with opportunities for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, it’s a wonderful time for wildlife watching as the ever-present snow drives large mammals into the valleys and thermal areas to search for food. You will see North America’s largest herd of free-roaming bison, as well as upwards of 20,000 elk, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, moose, deer, and possibly gray wolves. Otters can be seen frolicking in the snow banks and swans drift lazily across misty pools. You will also be greeted by steaming hot pools, spectacular geysers and bubbling mud pots. It’s a unique perspective on America’s first National Park.
