National Park

Yellowstone National Park is a wondrous land of geysers, mountains, wildlife, and rugged backcountry. Dedicated as the first U.S. National Park in 1872 by President Ulysses S. Grant. Yellowstone has many wonders to observe like Old Faithful Geyser in the Upper Geyser Basin, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone with its upper and lower falls, Mammoth Hot Springs with its multicolored terraces and of course lots of wildlife to view. Yellowstone is home to elk, bison, wolves, grizzly bear and moose to name a few. Visit Hayden and Lamar Valleys to see the herds.

Yellowstone's climate is unpredictable so be prepared with a warm jacket and rain gear. Most of Yellowstone National Park is above 7,500 feet.
