On Thursday, September 12, at 7 PM at the Rochester Historical Society Museum at 58 Hanson Street, Raymond Turmelle will present Yellowstone’s Winter Splendor. Whether you visit Yellowstone Park in winter or in summer, it can be an unforgettable experience. Wintertime, however, has a magic all its own where nature rules in a frozen land of mist shrouded pools, bubbling hot springs, and steaming geysers. When winter sets in the most obvious attraction is the abundance of wildlife. Thousands of deer, elk, bison and moose congregate along the waterways and hot spring areas where the warm ground melts the snow before it can accumulate to any great depth. Undoubtedly the most publicized geyser is Old Faithful. Its eruption and length of play have changed little since its discovery over 130 years ago.
Ray Turmelle is well known for his years leading the Graniteer Drum and Bugle Corps. An experienced hiker and photographer, he has hiked on five continents and taken wonderful photographs of beautiful scenery that he has gladly shown to those who only dream of such adventure.
The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will follow the meeting.
