November General Meeting

Winter in Yellowstone

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to watch wolves hunt in winter, or walk through a geyser basin during minus 27 degree temperatures?  Following his recent article in Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine, Beau Johnston will show you the many wildlife and scenic viewing opportunities available in Yellowstone National Park during the winter.  Beau has made more than 10 trips to Yellowstone in the last five years; and in the last two years has devoted a week each February to exploring the park. Gripped in the clutches of the Polar Vortex this last February, Yellowstone saw some of the coldest temperatures in recent decades.  These brutally cold temperatures made for spectacular photographic opportunities.

Beau Johnston is a mechanical engineer, writer, and photographer based in Casper.  Passionate about the outdoors and the outdoor lifestyle, Beau, his wife (Krista), and their dog (Gus) can be found spending most weekends traveling, camping, and fly fishing.  Beau’s award winning photography has been recognized by publications across the region.  He feels that many people have lost their sense of adventure, and are now disconnected from nature and from each other. By documenting travel, through photography, he strives to inspire others to experience new cultures and the world around them.

You are invited to join us and learn how you, too, can experience Yellowstone National Park as few ever will.  The meeting will be on Friday, November 14, 2014 at 7 pm at the Oil & Gas Conservation Commission Building at 2211 King Blvd.  As always, the program is free and open to the public!
