Yellowstone will do that to you...the raw wilderness has a way of penetrating your soul. It's a lens with which to see yourself, too. You probably wouldn't survive out here in the dead of winter. The average person wouldn't. Andy, our hired park guide, said that Winter is actually the top predator in Yellowstone. And we experienced it...with all of our layers and tech fibers, we endured -30F...it was brutal, especially if you wear glasses...every exhale fogged your glasses which then immediately froze. Without our support vehicle and warm meal waiting for our return, we ourselves would likely not survive these wolf and elk temperatures. Even the bison take refuge in the thermal springs.
Winter in Yellowstone is both exceptionally beautiful and brutally honest. Everyone on our trip thoroughly enjoyed themselves, however we all took moments to reflect on our lives, the year past, the new year, and using the template of the wilderness we began contemplating the path of the rest of our lives. If you're into spiritual awakenings, there's nothing better than putting yourself on the temple of nature in front of wolves, bison, eagles and ravens...and together, building your future.
Please join us next year as we embark on this remarkable journey into Wolf Country one more time.
