Grand Teton/ Yellowstone Winter, Scenic Wildlife Photography Special
Jan 23-30 th 2015
Winter in Yellowstone; steaming geysers, boiling hot springs and possibly the best winter large mammal photo opportunity on the planet make this a once in a lifetime. We will put you in the best locations and show you how to bring home incredible images from the wonderland of Yellowstone in winter. On this trip we will move on to Grand Teton and Jackson Hole one of the most scenic mountain ranges in North America.
During your time in Yellowstone we will concentrate on capturing the essence of winter in the world's first National Park. From pre dawn to after the last twilight we will capture images of the beauty of this land in the grip of winter. We will visit the steaming geysers and thermal areas of Norris geyser Basin and the interior of the Yellowstone. You will photograph Old Faithful, Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and the winter wilderness of Hayden Valley. This will all be done from our warm secure modern private snow coach where you can quick escape the coldest extremes to warm and secure yourself and your equipment.
Of course we will also photograph the wintering home of frost Bison, Elk, Moose, Coyotes, Bighorn Sheep, Mule Deer, Pronghorn Antelope,Trumpeter Swans, and Bald Eagles. Our quest will include the master of all hunters, the charismatic wild wolf. Our hunting ground will be the wonderland of Yellowstone in winter with steaming thermal areas, frost covered wildlife, pristine snow covered wild lands. This will not be as easy as autumn elk, Florida shore birds or Bosque snow geese but if you have dreamed of photographing wild wolves I feel this is your best chance.
After leaving Yellowstone we will photograph our way to Jackson Hole and the most scenic mountain range in North America the Teton Range, center piece of Grand Teton National Park. But Jackson Hole and the area surrounding Grand Teton National Park is about more that photographing the mountains. Jackson Hole is a fabulous winter range for thousands of Elk, many Bison, Mule Deer, Moose and other wildlife.
A brief schedule includes:
Afternoon of the 23rd, 24th and most of the 25th in Mammoth/Lamar Valley the winter home of a large amount of the wildlife that resides in Yellowstone. Leaving in the afternoon for our scenic drive to West Yellowstone.
The 26-27th we will be snow coaching from West Yellowstone to the thermal areas in the Old Faithful basin along the Madison and Firehole rivers home to concentrations of wintering wildlife and swans one day, the next day wild take us into the wild and remote interior of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and the near by valleys.
Morning of the 28th we will be leaving West Yellowstone for our scenic drive to Grand Teton National Park arriving in Teton's/Jackson around 9 am. The 29th and morning of the 30th will be spent making great images of the rugged landscape and wildlife of Jackson Hole. Here we will have a good chance to photograph moose and Mountain Goat in addition to Bison and Elk. Conditions permitting you will board our private chartered horse drawn sleigh to ride among the vast herds of wintering elk on the National Elk Refuge where upwards of 8,000 -10,000 elk winter with the background of the awe inspiring Teton range for a backdrop.
The snow coaches I have arranged for normally carry 10 to 12 passengers, we will have a maximum of 6 so that there is plenty of room.
