Wildlife photographer Tom Murphy is well known for documenting the beauty and wildlife of Yellowstone National Park. He shares photos and experiences from decades of hiking, camping and skiing across Yellowstone, a place he refers to as "one of the finest wild land ecosystems in the world." (Photos and captions by Tom Murphy.)
"Wild land is my interest," says photographer Tom Murphy. "It's amazing to me that we have one of the finest wild land ecosystems in the world and a core of that is in Yellowstone Park. It's beautiful; it's accessible. Three and a half million people visit every year, but most of them stay on the roads and the parking areas, which is fine."
"But get off the road, and it's a profoundly beautiful, healthy, wild place. I like it. That's why I live here."
