Yellowstone in Winter, Day 3 in the morning

Sunday dawned bright and cold. We had booked a trip by Snow Coach across the Continental Divide, to Kepler Falls and then to the West Thumb Geyser Basin.

After an early coffee and scone, we met in the lobby wearing silk long johns, pants, waterproof over-pants, gators, thermal socks, boots, base-layer shirt, shirt, double layer jackets, scarf, fur-lined hats with earflaps, and double gloves. Luckily, we boarded the Snow Coach quickly and it was heated very lightly, which helped to have the windows fog less. By 8:00, we were off to see the snow and thermal features!
Still pretty dark when we started out.
This is Kepler Falls in winter.

Those poles are marking the edge of the "road" so the Snow Coach doesn't fall off.
The next several photos are at the West Thumb Geyser Basin.

Mystical places. All the steam and ice!
