Yellowstone in Winter 2011
Yellowstone this winter was very beautiful and very cold, more normal than last year, when snow packs were low and temperatures hovered in the 20’s and 30’s F (-7 to -1 C) The early morning low was -30 F (-34 C). Even so, remembering when the world was young, winter daytime highs in Yellowstone used to be -34C. In those days, accommodations were spartan and the food was inedible. Now it’s much more civilized with many more winter visitors. The food is great and the rooms warm and comfortable. So what’s to complain about?
