Bison in Winter

April 05, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

Winter is a great time to visit Yellowstone National Park and experience the harsh environment.

The only road accessible by car is in the northern section of the park from Gardiner to Cooke City.

The rest of the park's interior is off limits to visitors with the exception of snow mobile tours, and, how I did it, via a snow coach. Think a van on giant wheels that allows it to drive on top of the deep snow pack.

Yellowstone's bison herds are divided into the southern herd, which spends most of its time between Hayden Valley and the Madison area, and the northern herd which goes between Lamar Valley and Gardiner's Paradise Valley.

Here are some shots of bison around the Madison river.  The cold temperatures at sunrise silhouetted this bull bison against the steamy river and frosted trees.
