The Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River, pictured here from Lookout Point, is 308 feet high making it the tallest waterfall in the park. In winter it is dwarfed by a massive ice cone that forms from the mist released from the falls. Do you have an ice cone photo to share?

Lucky visitors were treated with sundogs within a 22° halo yesterday early in the morning as the temperature hovered around 0°F. These are atmospheric optical phenomena caused by the refraction of sunlight by ice crystals. Do you have a favorite sunlight phenomenon experience?

Frosty Friday: It’s all about layers! One of the many winter adaptations a bison uses to endure subzero temps is dual-layer fur. The outer fur is long and coarse: it keeps the inner fur soft and dry so it can trap heat against the skin.

Grand is right! Lion is a good guess, but it's another geyser in that area.

Grand is right! The other geyser is a short walk from Grand.

Old Faithful is in the correct geyser basin, but it isn't one of these two. Steamboat Geyser is located in the Norris Geyser Basin.
