About 4 million people visit Yellowstone National Park each year, almost all of them in June, July, and August. By comparison, the park is practically deserted the rest of the year. In fact, only about 3 % of the annual visitors go between November and April. These are the months when much of the wildlife are out and the park offers some of the most spectacular sights.
Our first winter visit to Yellowstone was in December of 1989. We had just bought a brand-new Chevrolet S-10 Blazer with the idea of using it for winter road trips. It did not disappoint us. Even in -34 F degree weather it performed flawlessly. This was long before the term “SUV” was coined.
We were there during the coldest winter of the century with temperatures well below zero in Kansas City when we left home. That is when I learned that there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes.
Please enjoy a few of our photographs from frigid Yellowstone.
