Got Snow!

 These still pictures are courtesy of the National Park Service from their webcams in Yellowstone.  Top picture is of Mount Washburn located in the interior of the park.
 Old Faithful Geyser, you can get here on snowmobiles or snowcoaches and a lodge to stay in for a memorial visit.  Jim and I went many years ago and it was 30 below,  painfully cold.  The beauty out weighs the pain.
Mammoth Hot Springs, the north entrance to the park, always open to regular vehicle traffic.  A quaint, historical, beautiful hotel to stay in.  No TV, radio or room service, but you do have hot and cold running water in your room unless you choose to share a bathroom with folks down the hallway.  Two suites do have cable now.  No difference from when Jim and I visited 20 years ago.  You get to bond with nature and wildlife instead of the outside world.  I like that.

  4. Hi Nancy,
    Beautiful pictures and happy memories for you.
    I'm in London where it is mild and gloomy but filled with bright lights and busy people.
    Have a lovely Christmas.
