The morning commute is a little different at Yellowstone National Park. Cameron Patrick captured this photo on a cold morning – just after the bison herd had waded through a river along side the road. The bisons’ body heat caused the water to turn to steam in the cold air, creating the mist around the bison.
In every season, at every hour, Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is a stunning and surprising landscape. Remote enough for dark skies to allow the Milky Way to shine and featuring steam rising from hot springs tinted with colorful bacteria and reflecting the aurora borealis, a night in the park offers enough wonders for a lifetime.
