Reader Participation Day: What Is The “National Park Experience” To You?

Bison In A Snowstorm At Upper Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming)

I just returned from a winter trip to Yellowstone National Park. It was full of bucket list items I was able to check off. An amazing experience about which I’ll be writing in upcoming articles for the National Parks Traveler.

And, speaking of the Traveler, today’s edition has a Reader Participation Day article asking what the “national park experience” means to YOU. Why not go over, read the article and the questions asked, and leave a comment at the end of the article. The Traveler uses these things as pointers to what articles to next write and publish.

As for the image itself, it was serendipitous. I was staying at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge, and got up early that morning to do photography along the Upper Geyser Basin. It was snowing, and as I approached Old Faithful, I saw a small herd of bison grazing right there. Luckily for me I’d brought along my long lens (Sony 100-400mm) and captured some iconic shots that you’ll be seeing in upcoming Traveler articles.

It’s pretty cool when we see bison roaming the landscapes of Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, and they sure make for great photo ops. Now, Montana officials are going to allow wild bison back in the state, but they want more study done as to where they are going to be allowed to roam, according to an article published in today’s edition of the National Parks Traveler.

Bison Can Control Yellowstone’s Green-Up In The Spring

Think of bison as “ecological engineers.” According to an article in the National Parks Traveler, they had control in many parts of the green-up of spring in Yellowstone National Park.

Woulda/coulda/shoulda spent more time photographing bison during my October trip to Yellowstone. Next time, I will!
