A chilly start to the day on a beautiful morning.
Yes, it is as cold as it looks!!!!
The scope...one of the many really great things of taking a guided tour with the Yellowstone Association is the equipment they have. These scopes are very easy to use and extremely powerful. First class equipment! www.yellowstoneassociation.org
Watching the Blacktail pack of wolves at Slough Creek...way out there, but visible through the scopes and with John's help in finding them.
A very happy group! John, our fearless leader is in the red jacket.
"It is so bright out here! Tell me when to open my eyes!"
Cold but happy!
Beth's expertly made snow angel!
Super-guide John Harmer hard at work!
Some of the unsung heroes of Yellowstone. These plow operators keep the road between Gardiner and Cooke City open throughout the winter. No easy feat!

Part of a herd of bison trying to eat what they can.
As this lone coyote was traveling over the partially frozen Lamar River it got to a spot where it did not like what it herd, saw, or felt and backtracked to find a different route. One miscalculation and it could mean a cold and slow end for it.
