Yellowstone Park by snow coach......................

 Your snow coach awaits!!
 The beautiful views begin.
 Up we go:)

 The steaming mountains.
There are lots of thermal areas in Yellowstone.
 This poor buffalo had to dig deep for a few bites of dead grass.

 My view out the front of the coach.

 We stopped here a couple of times to eat lunch, bathroom breaks and while our driver gassed up the snow coach.
 This is one of the water falls we saw.

 It was running just not full speed.

 The little Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.

 BIG country.............
 Hey that's us with the waterfall way in the background.:) I would like to see it in the summer sometime.
This guy was busy doing his job removing snow from the roof! He sawed it into chunks and slid it off the roof. The trouble was it was piled up as high as the roof.

 More thermals

 And it was snowing when we walked around that area. It wasn't bad cus we were moving up and down some hills.
 These guys are no dummies they walk on the road where it's easy going.

 Getting farther down the mountains the sun was out.
 The snow is smooth as glass.

 We made it after an all day snow coach ride we are back to where we started, at the Mammoth Hot Springs hotel.
 This building is the restaurant.

 A few pics of the inside.

The next day we drove all day and evening to get home to our own bed!!!
 We got our first calf the other day so no one will be going to far from home until maybe June!!!!!......................JMF

That was a fun trip! Thanks for taking me along, but after viewing all those snow pictures, I'm cold. Time to curl up under a quilt. Welcome home!
