A_Few_Stars_Came_Out_at_Kilauea_Volcano
It rained the whole time we were at the volcano but we set our alarm for 2 AM hoping I'd be able to shoot the Milky Way over the caldera. No Milky Way visible in the mist but a few stars managed to pop out for about 5 minutes!
Stream_Leading_to_the_Steam_
I loved the leading lines and colors against the snow and dark sky
Staring_Into_the_Sun_At_Siltcoos_Outlet_
When it looks like a good sunset, I try to get to this spot since it has wonderful lines and reflections and is only accessible October- March
Old_Faithful_Blows_At_Sunset_
We got to our rooms in the Snow Lodge after a very long and wonderful day and learned that Old faithfull was just about to blow and it would be at close to sunset. The sunset colors were subtle but beautiful none the less
Murmuration_of_Dusky_Canadian_Geese_
Apparently Finley Wildlife Reserve was first created as a spot for dsuky Canadian geese to rest on their migration path. They sure like it there!

We were looking for the wolves that had recently been eating a bison that they had taken down, and I looked up and say this little one
Golden Hour On the Dunes
We've had a lot of rainy weather so when It looked hopeful at the last minute that there would be a good sunset, I went down to the dunes behind Fred Meyers. This was just before sunset
Going Fishing+
I'm not sure if he was fishing for fish or ducks but boy was he determined and patient
Feathery Frost +
Apparently this kind of frost is created by gasses freezing. Rhime frost I think.

In the midst of a mostly monotone winter environment, there were frequent colorful surprises

Watching the Travertine Flow
As we hiked around on our last day
Two Against One
Love their expressions
Take the Path B and W
Jim read a book "Death in Yellowstone" after we returned and learned that many people die going off the walkways because the thermals keep moving and are unpredictable...sometimes comfortable warm, sometimes horrendously hot
Stream Winding Through the Bobby Socks
The white "bobby socks' on these dead trees are mineral deposits that were in the water. Beautiful scene
Stream Leading to the Steam
I loved the leading lines and colors against the snow and dark sky
Trumpeter_Swans_Sheltering_Each_Other
I just loved these beauties in Yellowstone
Travertine_Flow
The travertine flow happens as the water from the bottom of the caldera moves up through limestone
The_Charge
Unfortunately I didn't get to photograph the whole group because our driver kept getting her head in the way of my camera. A small group of young bison got spooked by something and came running down the road towards our snow coach. It was scary in the coach. I can only imagine what it was like in the snow mobiles. Bison run at 35 mph!
