The Yellowstone park service has just announced the opening of some of the roads inside the park. Click here for the link…
I always get excited when the signs that winter is losing it’s grip appear, because it means spring is arriving and one of my favorite times to visit the park.
I use to get down there more frequently in previous years and one of the times I enjoyed the most is when the Bison start calving.
To see those little guys running around is awesome.
If you can make it down in May and early June, you have a lot of the park to yourself, compared to craziness that descends upon it in the summer.
If I am just doing some day trips in the park, West Yellowstone is a great place to stay and I will put a plug in for my excellent hosts at the One Horse Motel. They operate a small little outfit there in town and for the price and service its great place to stay. Especially for starving photographers:)
Working your way into the park from West Yellowstone, you more than likely will have ample photo ops of Bison along the Madison River and with the calves running around, you can expect to get some great stuff.
Plan on as much time possible, because as you’ll discover if you haven’t visited before, there are what seems like endless discoveries to be had.
If Spring wildlife isn’t your thing, the thermal features provide really unique subject matter along with the other-worldly landscapes that encompass Yellowstone.
