Wednesday in Wyoming -- January 1, 2014

Happy New Year! 

I thought I'd spend this month taking you to what you probably already know is my favorite place on Earth: Yellowstone.  Although each season there has its own beauty, since it's winter right now, I'm going to focus on winter in Yellowstone. 

Access is considerably more limited, with only a few roads open and travel to the interior possible only by snowmobile, snow coach (an adventure in itself) and skis.  Despite that, there are compensations, including seeing the the power of the geysers vividly displayed against the snow.  It's one thing to know that the geysers spew hot water, but when you see how much snow is melted by each eruption, there's no doubt that that's very hot water and that there's a lot of it.
