So after a couple of days in the northern sections of the park, we traded in our NatHab vans for snowcoaches, which are specially-designed to navigate the snow-drifted roads in the interior of the park.
We are talking a LOT of snow!
One of the gals in our group who lives in Florida took advantage of a rare opportunity for her to make a snow angel.
Even trips to the bathroom (trust me...this was much better than most!) were adventures. Those seats were COLD!!! I always prayed my hiney wouldn't get frozen to the seat and I'd have to call for help!
The park rangers were all on snowmobiles!
But the snow sure made for some gorgeous photos!
We couldn't get enough of the snowy bison...this one was in a stream, eating his way along the bank.
Canada geese were literally "chillin'" in the water....
We stopped along the way for photo ops, like this coyote licking his lips...
Oh, goodness...this beautiful fox was right next to the road...just look at his fabulous coat!
My favorite fox photo of the trip...
We fought the wicked winter wind and walked up to the overlook of Undine Falls...
...but it was almost completely frozen over.
But Kepler Cascades was not. Wow...such beauty!!!
A little long-exposure fun to make the water silky....
These waterfowl are called goldeneyes...wonder why?!
We began seeing a few moose here and there...
The males all lose their antlers in January each year and are just beginning to get nubs coming back in. You can see the white spot on his head where his antler will regrow.
God's creation is stunningly beautiful!
A fun couple of days...
