Winter landscapes in Yellowstone National Park

Travertine terraces at Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park in winter
Travertine terraces are formed from thermal water rising through limestone. Heat-loving bacteria and algae add vivid colors to the chalky-white travertine.

Winter brings a very unique look to the geothermal and mountainous landscapes of Yellowstone National Park.

I spent a week touring the park this winter and captured some of the otherworldly scenes in this gem of the National Park Service. You can also check out some of the wildlife that I encountered along the way.
