Image description: A family sits on the porch of a house. The man’s face is in shadow from his hat. Next to him is a woman with her white hair piled on top of her head; on either side of them are four young women. The house is on flat, scrubby-looking land. In the background are mountains.
The coldest temperature ever recorded in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming was -66°F on February 9, 1933. When temperatures get that cold and there’s no wind, water vapor will freeze to things like grasses, trees and rocks, known as hoarfrost. Do you get hoarfrost where you live? Photo by Jacob W.
