This morning we decided to explore the trails around West Yellowstone. There are trails that go directly into the park and some in the surrounding national forest. However, we found the trailheads warning of bear attack and recommending travel in groups of 3 or more. Also, we forgot the bear spray. Therefore, we stuck to the trails close to town and kept a lookout.
It has been a bright, beautiful day with the temps just rising into the 30’s so the snow is gleaming and water dripping from every point. At this rate the snow will be gone by tomorrow.
The picture I like best in this series is the picture of the pine needles with some snow on them. It is evocative. Also, wise move, with the bears; after all, they are definitely not teddy bears!
