Yellowstone in Winter


see larger map >>

February 4 to 10, 2020

Discover the dramatic beauty of Yellowstone National Park in the hush of winter. Travel across snow-covered landscapes to catch sight of Yellowstone’s wildlife, waterfalls framed by ice and geysers erupting into the cold winter air. Experience firsthand the park’s vastness, the silence and the slowness of life.

Leader of the pack. Stanford biology professor and faculty director of Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Elizabeth Hadly, will illuminate us on the park’s unique ecology and natural features. Thermal activity. Pass through the iconic Roosevelt Arch at the park’s north entrance on our way to Mammoth Hot Springs, keeping an eye out for resident elk warming themselves at the thermal springs. Quiet grandeur. View ice-shrouded waterfalls in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and be awed by the icicle-covered “ghost trees” that form during  the winter in the Upper Geyser Basin.
