I recently had the good fortune of scoring a seat on the park’s courier to help deliver mail and other supplies to folks living in the interior of the park. Since I work in Mammoth this is a rare and exciting treat. Going into the park is like taking a trip to another planet! We were greeted by beautiful wintery landscapes, had several wildlife encounters, and enjoyed the bubbling thermal features along Yellowstone Lake at West Thumb Geyser Basin. For anyone who has ever dreamed of visiting this amazing place in the winter, it’s well worth the extra effort!
