Over the the long New Year's weekend of 1 Jan 10, Tracy and I went to Yellowstone with Jess
and Amber. Winter is a great time to see animals, and we especially wanted to find wolves.
We ran into some blowing snow on the drive into West Yellowstone on Thursday night, but
other than that, the weather was nice. In fact, there wasn't nearly as much snow in
Yellowstone or Cooke City as we have normally seen. We did a little hiking on the Blacktail
winter critter there is to see in Yellowstone: Gray wolves, Bald eagles, Golden eagles, Bighorn
sheep, Elk, Bison, Mule deer, and Coyotes. We saw nearly a dozen coyotes...it was kinda
weird. We also saw a bunch of eagles outside the park. We heard wolves howling, which is
the best part of Yellowstone, I think. All in all, it was another good winter trip to Yellowstone.
