      111514   There is nothing better than a visit to Yellowstone in the winter.

      The North Entrance through Gardiner, Montana is our favorite way to experince winter in Yellowstone.

 
      After driving for days to reach Yellowstone National Park, the last thing you want, is to have to ask someone where the park is.
      Unlike the other park entrances, the second you pass the North Entrance gate you see Yellowstone up close,
      because the vistas are wide open.  Your view is not blocked by the ubiquitous Lodge Pole Pine (Pinus contorta) found elsewhere in the park.
      The elk and bison will be off the road, the Gardiner River will be cascading next to the twisting road. In a mere five minutes you
      pass the "Hot Pots" at the 45th Latitude sign.   (Panorama two) After climbing five miles from Gardiner, Montana (elevation 5,224 ft)
      you are greeted by the spectacular town of Mammoth Hot Springs (elevation 6,239 ft).  
      (Panorama one) As you turn west at the summit you are greeted by the steam rising from the Hot Spring Terraces and blissful silence.
      Go the the next webpage to see the Hot Spring Terraces and listen to the "silence" up close.
