Back for the Winter Season at Yellowstone.

I reported back to Yellowstone on December 16th for the winter season. I'm sure many folks were just kidding me about the winters up here, but being from Houston, Texas, I'm sure they were just a little bit serious as well.

So, how am I faring in this winter wonderland? It is fantastic. It's cold, that's for sure, and there's lots of snow, but it is great. In Houston, we used to have at least 15 or 20 minutes of winter every year, so there's that. Driving out to Lamar Valley and sitting on the hood of my jeep and just watching the various animals trying to survive is just unbelievable. I am getting so many pictures and one is just better than the next, and then next. I took the snow coach tour down to Old Faithful and, while it is a LONG ride, the park is just a fairyland of sights and sounds in the winter. So very few people, at times it is like you have the park to yourself. That is no exaggeration.

I've been talking to folks in the area of Gardiner, Montana, and looking for a place to live so I can just move on up here and not have to live in the park housing. Since I'm once again working for the Reservations Office, anything nearby would work for me. I've already gotten my summer contract for 2015, April 26th through October 14th, so I know I'll have a short break (April 3rd to April 26th), then I'll be back to work.

So, whether I continue to work for Xanterra, or not, I'm planning to be right up here at Yellowstone. I still keep a National Parks Pass so I can go in and out of any of the parks as much as I want, so no job is absolutely necessary. But, as long as I'm being treated well and the work is good, I'll stick around. This isn't bad at all.
