19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Snow Monkey #2

I was doing a driving trip through Japan and made it a point to stop at Jigokundani Monkey Park, in the Japanese Alps. Here is the only place in the world where Japanese Macaque monkeys sit year round in the natural hot springs, and you can see them in their natural habitat.
