This winter has been a real Montana winter that we know of. First half of January had been cold, last week was slightly easier, reaching 40F. Then the cold spell is on the way as of this typing.
We drove to Yellowstone National Park for the first time since The Last Day of Fishing.
Though nowadays we can check snowpack/precipitations online, we wanted to see and feel ourselves. We "walked" - no snowshoes or XC skiing...........Quite an exercise😆
First we walked from Roosevelt Lodge to Tower Falls, along Yellowstone River.
Moose!!??? oh, deer.......
Calcite Spring Overlook - We thought of Yellowstone Cutthroat swimming and getting cozy around the spring............ Hope to see them soon.........
We made sure there have been good amounts of snow in our headwater region = YNP.
Though there will be some more factors to consider = how spring rolls =, we can definitely have high hopes for good water year!!
