After a heavy snowfall, the world is as beautiful as a fairy tale world. Under the heavy snowfall, white snowflakes fell between the villages and towns, between the mountains and rivers, and between the treetops, which is romantic to the extreme. Where is the most beautiful winter?

Its summer and winter are two different worlds. In summer, Yellowstone is colorful, and in winter, the park is covered with white snow everywhere. In winter, Yellowstone Park will always encounter many wild animals, they will come down from the cold mountain to forage in the warm hot spring area.
Due to the inflow of geothermal water, some river sections not only do not freeze, but also steam, which makes both sides of the river carved with jade and silver, but the river surface is green, flowing safely, like a fairy tale world!
