Tom Murphy – The Journey Through Yellowstone

Thirty years ago, renowned wildlife photographer, Tom Murphy embarked upon the expedition of a lifetime – he skied across Yellowstone National Park, in the dead of winter, by himself with only a blue tarp as a shelter. A life defining trip that has yet to be repeated.

At the age of 66, Tom went back across Yellowstone’s frozen landscape, this time with a film crew to document the journey. The expedition once again took him across the most remote and inaccessible parts of the park. He was pushed to the brink of his endurance and the trip tested his years of backcountry experience.

This film (slated for release late 2016), will document his journey across the park as well as explore Tom’s life as a photographer, his philosophy about nature, wilderness, and his love for the striking beauty and power of Yellowstone’s most unforgiving season – winter.

The journey began Feb. 20th and completed March 6th, traversing 160 miles across Yellowstone. You can see images from the journey on Tom’s TWITTER & INSTAGRAM feeds, a great way to experience the trip with images and commentary from the trail.

It is officially winter! Hopefully we can all avoid conditions like those in this photograph.
