Best of Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris – July 6-18

I missed last week’s update, so here’s two weeks worth of favorite photos from my guided safaris with Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris. We had a lot of rain and clouds move in which helped with a lot of the wildlife shots, and even a few landscapes! I also hit Old Faithful a little later than normal recently and was able to catch a rainbow at the base of the eruption. I’ve been adding plenty more photos in addition to what’s here, so be sure to check out all the galleries for plenty more and be sure to get in touch with Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris to reserve your trip. Clicking on any photo will allow you to purchase a print if you’re interested. – Continue reading

Bison of Yellowstone National Park in Winter

A video of bison grazing and wandering around the Upper Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park.

One thing I was happy to do while in Yellowstone National Park last weekend was to begin plenty of new video footage. The bison made for great subjects partly because they were all over the Upper Geyser Basin area, and also because they can be very interesting to watch. We were warned by park rangers that because of the amount of snow that’s fallen this season, that the bison are very stressed. As a result, a cross-country ski trip to Biscuit Basin took much longer than expected due to bison in the trail. Rather than going around them though, we made the best of it with some photography.

Great Fountain Geyser in Yellowstone National Park

Thermophiles bask in the boiling water coming from Great Fountain Geyser in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.

One of the more popular but underrated geysers in Yellowstone in the Great Fountain Geyser for its size and amazing display of color. I was hoping to see it go off, however time restrictions at the time prevented me from being able to wait around to see it, especially since it’s roughly every 9-15 hours. It gets its bold, orange color from thermophiles, otherwise known as bacteria that love extremely hot temperatures. – Continue reading
