Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone National Park Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is America's first national park. Located in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, it is home to a large variety of wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and elk. Preserved within Yellowstone National Park are Old Faithful and a collection of the world's most extraordinary geysers and hot springs, and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.
Well, after you've been to the Tetons, Yellowstone is just a bit too big and too long of a drive. While geologically interesting - it's not a place you can expect something exciting at every corner. However, most people seem to think so and they chronically drive 5-10 mph under the speed limit... Everywhere. It's NOT Disneyland people!! There are 100's of thousands of acres here so wildlife is probably not going to leap out at every turn. Be patient, be considerate and for heaven's sake go for a hike. Best time/ way to see Yellowstone: after Labor Day or by horseback on a several day trek. Best hot springs pools: West Thumb. Best mineral springs: Mammoth of course. Best Geyser - not Old Faithful... Check out the entire basin and bring water + good shoes. Expect an entire day to take in the Old Faithful geyser basin.
Excellent...oh my gosh was stunning and breathtakingly amazing. A photographers dream. Enjoyed the whole park...didn't miss anything. Stayed in all of the hotels which were exceptionally great and stunning. The National Park staff are amazing and the other staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Yellowstone National Park is a must see..
Breathtakingly beautiful. You can spend a few months here at the Park. Absolutely gorgeous. Loved lower Falls, Artist Point, Lamar Valley, Mammoth Springs, Old Faithful Geyser, Castle Geyser just to name a few. Canyon Lodge is an amazing place to stay. Loved the food from cafe in Canyon Village.
Absolutely fantastic, unfortunately we couldn't visit everything in our 2 days here. Breathtaking scenery, the upper and lower falls brinks are a must see! Morning Glory thermal pool so beautiful. We saw herds of buffalo, prong horn and mule deer, Burros and coyote. We did see one snake at mammoth hot springs. Definitely want to visit again.
Yellowstone National Park is vastly rich in wildlife and has so many natural beauties. Admission is a fair price. I'd recommend to anyone who's interested in going for the first time to make sure that they start early, at least 08:00am, because if you're wanting to see a good portion of the park, there's a lot of driving to be done.
