My 2020 winter Yellowstone trip was the best winter experience I’ve ever had in the park. I headed over in mid-January to spend a week on my own in the northern range before kicking off my winter photo tour. For the tour, we spent three days on a private snow coach in the park interior, followed by three more days back in the north. You can read the trip reports I posted from the park here.
Throughout the two weeks, I was treated to some marvelous wildlife encounters and photo opportunities. The main highlight of this trip involved wolves, and I will be publishing a separate gallery of wolf images soon. But I’m kicking things off with the rest of the subjects I photographed. There was a lot of good stuff aside from wolves on this trip. I enjoyed my best otter encounter in a few years. During my tour we had not one but two weasels running around at the same time (probably my best weasel encounter ever). Bison, moose and other animals put on a great show. And there was even some nice scenery along the way. It was a truly memorable trip.
If you missed it, I shared some monochrome images from this adventure in last week’s article on black and white photography.
You can see the full gallery of 167 new (non-wolf) photos here. A short preview is below.

If you’d like to join me on next year’s winter photo tour, it’s currently full but there’s a possibility we may get some cancellations. I encourage folks to learn more about the trip and get on the waiting list in case spots open up.
