Yellowstone National Park not only is a very unique geological system, but it also has it's own unique weather and ecosystem. Most of the park site at over 6,000 feet above sea level which helps to explain some of the unusual weather at the park. The saying goes that it can snow any day of the year at Yellowstone. I have experienced this effect more than once. Winters can average -20 degrees Fahrenheit and has been as cold as -66 degrees Fahrenheit. Yellowstone receives an average of about 13 feet ( 4m) of snow a winter with the upper elevations getting twice that amount.
This is one of my favorite places to explore and just enjoy watching mother nature. Between the wildlife and the varied landscape, there is always something to admire and photograph. Click on the links below and I hope you enjoy the images.
