Yellowstone National Park
Established on March 1, 1872, Yellowstone National Park is the first and oldest national park in the world. It is known for its famous geysers and abundant wildlife. Preserved within Yellowstone National Park are Old Faithful Geyser and some 10,000 hot springs and geysers, the majority of the planet's total. These geothermal wonders are evidence of one of the world's largest active volcanoes; its last eruption created a crater or caldera that spans almost half of the park. An outstanding mountain wildland with clean water and air, Yellowstone is home of the grizzly bear and wolf, and free-ranging herds of bison and elk. It is the core of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the largest intact temperate zone ecosystems remaining on the planet.
We could go here every year for the rest of our lives and still not see it all.
