Explorer Frederick Schwatka and photographer F. Jay Haynes led an expedition into Yellowstone National Park during January 1887, amid one of the worst winters in the northern Rocky Mountains. The party traveled by ski and snowshoe, but Schwatka suffered physical collapse and dropped out. Haynes and others continued through brutal weather at great personal peril and photographed the major geysers and scenic attractions. Includes biographical information on Schwatka and Haynes and photographs from the expedition.
