Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is the oldest one in the world. And it’s also one of the most unique, colorful and beautiful national parks we’ve ever been to. Located in 3 states, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana, it’s vast and there’s a lot to see. In this photo essay we show you our favorite scenes from the park with pictures. So let’s go!
Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces
A favorite place of bison. You can see herds of them in the distance, and some might even come close to the road or cross the road.
Yellowstone is the largest active geyser field in the world. There are over 10000 hot springs and geysers in Yellowstone.
Grand Prismatic Spring
The largest, most colorful and by far the most famous hot spring in Yellowstone.
Another spectacular hot spring in the Upper Basin.
The most famous and most predictable geyser in the park. It erupts about every 60-110 minutes.
A special area of Norris Geyser Basin with milky pools.
Wildflowers of Mount Washburn
Okay, this is not an exact place, but wildlife is everywhere in Yellowstone. Black bears, grizzlies, bisons, gray wolves, lynxes, elks, mooses, foxes… And you better pay attention as they cross the road – though you’ll most probably be happy to slow down to observe them from up close.
Which of these places put Yellowstone on your dream list?
