Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park was the first national park in the United States, established in 1872 by President Ulysses S. Grant.  It’s known for its wildlife and its many geothermal features, especially Old Faithful Geyser, one of the most popular attractions in the park. It is located primarily in the state of Wyoming, although it also extends into Montana and Idaho.  The park spans an area of 3,468 square miles, comprising canyons, mountain ranges, rivers and lakes, including Yellowstone Lake, one of the largest high-altitude lakes in North America and centered over the Yellowstone Caldera, the largest supervolcano on the continent. Yellowstone is also famous for a wide array of wildlife that includes grizzly bears, wolves, elk and the oldest and largest public bison herd in the United States.
