  • Yellowstone Winter 2022 Trip Report, Days 11 & 12

    January 23, 2022 Sunday was a transition day. With my first tour all wrapped up… Wait, what’s that? The first tour wasn’t over?

I even had a chance to travel overseas again (two Africa trips!), no small feat during COVID, but something I felt could be done safely and which felt so good. It
