You can enjoy the peace and silence of nature and its unique beauty in this period. But you should remember that you are traveling among nature and can meet various dangers like changing weather, hydrothermal areas, open streams, deep snow, and wild animals as well. You have no guarantees of being safe. Before you go you should speak to the rangers to find out the weather and snow conditions and other details, like road closures and so on.
