Moose saved the best for last. On Friday, we visited the Norris Geyser Basin. It is impossible to describe the haunting beauty that the gorgeous snow covered views deep within our first national park offer in winter. The steamy chemical stew from the geysers, hot springs, fumaroles and mud pots blankets the trees surrounding these features with snowy shrouds and creates a look like no other place on earth. The effect is otherworldly.
