February 25 – March 3, 2018
Experience the wonders of a winter expedition in Yellowstone with Beverly and Michael of Visions Photographic Workshops. Explore the beauty of winter in our oldest national park, a creative winter wonderland with it’s mineral pools burning through the snow, elk and bison enjoying the warm thermal basins and the glistening of the white landscape everywhere you turn.
Experience the wonders of Yellowstone in the solitude of winter. Winter in Yellowstone means transportation by snow coach, snowshoes or cross country skis! Be one of the few to enjoy the frozen rivers, lakes, and waterfalls, and herds of shaggy bison wandering the steaming geyser basins.
Private heated snow coach within the park provides for a warm place between photography excursions in the frigid winter temperatures of Yellowstone National Park.
- 3 nights at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge just steps from Old Faithful Geyser and the Upper and Lower Geyser Basin.
- 2 nights at Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel adjacent to a unique thermal area on a hill of travertine. Mammoth Hot Springs is the Park headquarters and features some of the oldest buildings in the park.
- Photography exploration to West Thumb Geyser Basin. Focus on steaming, mineral pools, with sapphire, emerald and violet hues and the possibility of a bison encounter.
- Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, where winter adds magic to an already magnificent landscape. Venture to the rim of the amazing canyon to capture images of its thundering waterfall and the ice arches that forms from the spray.
- Yellowstone’s wildlife; elk, bison, the elusive gray wolf of the Lamar Valley and the playful otter and soaring eagles.
- The sun sets early and the night skies are twinkling with more stars than you have ever seen.
- Evenings are spent gathered around a roaring fire at the Lodge sharing the day’s experience with a glass of wine and local treats.
