Yellowstone National Park
Visit Yellowstone and experience the world's first national park. Marvel at a volcano's hidden power rising up in colorful hot springs, mudpots, and geysers. Explore mountains, forests, and lakes to watch wildlife and witness the drama of the natural world unfold. Discover the history that led to the conservation of our national treasures "for the benefit and enjoyment of the people."
Simply amazing park containing 60% of the world's geysers. An incredible trip, we did a lot in just a day but I'd recommend more than that. Old faithful is cool to see but right next to it there are a plethora of other geysers that are absolutely worth the short walking tour! Yellowstone has an unbelievable amount of beauty contained within it's borders, from Grand canyon (replete with rushing waterfalls) to scenic drives, there are trails ranging from easy to hard as can be. Check out the geysers, the hot springs, the upper and lower falls, the mud pits, the wildlife... Just go. Go now. You won't regret it.
A more fantastic experience than I could imagine. Park personnel very helpful. Park. Very clean. So much to see and map so helpful. A trip that most definitely should be on your bucket list!! I was able to see a Mama bear and her 2 cubs up close, she was in a hurry. Beautiful area!!
Definitely worth taking the trip to. Staff is friendly and the rangers are even pleasant to the children they see. The ranger events every night at 9:30 is worth seeing. Haven't been able to see the events earlier in the day but would definitely recommend any of the events. Tons of information and interactive.
I've been to Yellowstone twice now. The first time I focused on the geothermal features and I was underwhelmed. This time I focused on the scenery around Yellowstone falls and lake. Much more enjoyable! If you want to camp in the park, forget it! Camping out in Shoshone national forest is much easier, less crowded, and usually free!
This is a vast park, full of some of the most amazing landscapes you'll ever see, but the tens of thousands of pushy and rude overseas tourists completely ruin the experience. I'd like to think I'm a reasonable, open-minded person, welcoming of people from other nations and cultures, but after being repeatedly shoved on the boardwalks and narrowly avoiding 3 auto accidents, I will NEVER come back here.
