THE WORLD’S FIRST NATIONAL PARK
The world’s first national park contains more than two million acres of steaming geysers, crystalline lakes, thundering waterfalls, panoramic vistas, and a remarkable diversity of mammals, birds and fish. Since being declared a national park in 1872 by the US Congress, Yellowstone National Park has attracted many from every state and country, speaking different languages…and they are proud of the treasure that is Yellowstone.
YELLOWSTONE, A GEOLOGICAL HOTSPOT
Yellowstone is home to the largest collection of geysers, hot springs, mud pots Yellowstone and fumaroles in the world. From the punctual eruptions of the famous Old Faithful Geyser to the constantly changing terraces of the Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park is a geologist’s heaven.
YELLOWSTONE NATURAL WONDERS
Although Yellowstone National Park is primarily flanked by geysers, mud cauldrons and hot springs, Yellowstone’s lakes, rivers and waterfalls tend to draw the flash of a camera. Set your sights on Yellowstone Lake, one of the world’s largest natural fresh water lakes and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. Yellowstone Country is also home to an abundant and diverse wildlife that include grizzlies, wolves and elk.
YELLOWSTONE OUTDOOR ADVENTURES
The best way to experience Yellowstone Country’s natural wonders is to completely immerse yourself in this spectacular setting. Discover Yellowstone National Park while hiking through 1,100 miles of trails or get a little wet during a fly fishing excursion. During the winter months, Yellowstone National Park still brings much to do with snowmobiling, skiing and snowshoeing.
