Staying active and staying outdoors is the theme here in Montana. Yesterday’s activity was a five hour snowshoe hike in the northwest tip of Yellowstone National Park led led by our fearless leader, Ken from Yellowstone Safari Company. An amazing day trekking through snow enjoying the natural beauty of a constant changing landscape.
One learns how vast this land is when you put on snowshoes and think you are going to just take a hike to explore Yellowstone. Yellowstone is so large that five hours of adventure trekking just gave me a taste of the majestic environment. Although no wildlife was spotted on this outing, a distant grizzly sighting would have been amazing. I did feel like a humble trespasser in their vast home of unspoiled wilderness. It is breathtakingly beautiful and nature is meant to be respected and enjoyed.
The day started off chilly but by the end I was peeling off layers of clothing. It was a bluebird day. I have a few more wrinkles from the sun but they will be a constant reminder of this beautiful day!
