In the first hour of the first morning on my recent visit to Yellowstone National Park, we stopped to photograph this lone tree just off Highway 191 which is the main road that parallels the Madison River into the park. It was barely light with heavy overcast when we stopped about 8AM. There was banter about this being a potential Christmas card photograph. Since I haven’t sent any Christmas cards in more than 20 years, it is doubtful that this would ever become a Christmas card. Consider this a (very) early Christmas greeting.
