Photos Added: Yellowstone Winter 2014

Soon I will depart for my first trip of the year.  I’ll be returning to Yellowstone to lead two winter photo tours.  It’ll be nice to be back in the park in winter, after missing out in 2016 due to the arrival of our baby.  Stay tuned for some short trip reports from the park during my upcoming stay.  In the meantime, if you’re interested in some “fresh” winter Yellowstone images, I have finally finished processing my photos from my two winter trips in 2014.

My first visit took place in January (when I led two tours), and then I returned for a week-long visit in the second week of December.  The January trip was better for landscapes, while the December visit was a bit more fruitful for wildlife.
