Yellowstone National Park (USA) ... 1, 1872. Located mostly in the U.S. state of Wyoming, parts of the park also extend into Montana and Idaho. The park is the centerpiece of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem which is the largest intact ecosystem in the northern temperate zone on Earth. The park is famous for its geysers, hot springs, supervolcano and other geothermal features and is home to grizzlies, wolves, and free-ranging herds of bison and elk. The famous Old Faithful Geyser is one of the best known features in the park.
Newest Review: ... of Bison walking aimlessly in the middle of the road at their own speed which are simply wonderful animals. Word of warning though, don't get out of the car to pet them as they can easily turn nasty and I believe you're consistently reminded of this when you're in there by way of signs and leaflets. There's a strong smell of sulphur and there's hot water running freely which you just ... more

When I visited this place a couple of years ago I imagine I felt how anyone else would be when you come across this creation of nature. It was simply breathtaking. I was approaching from the North having just come across from Montana. This place kind of creeps up with you and the only way we first of all knew we were in the park was when we went under a small stone archway welcoming us (although that was followed by a toll booth and an entrance fee soon afterwards) The ecosystem there is just astounding, you have heard of Bison walking aimlessly in the middle of the road at their own speed which are simply wonderful animals. Word of warning ... Read the complete review

As a Geography student, I knew I would find Yellowstone interesting, but it was truly one of the most amazing places I have ever been! I went in July with my family, driving in a hire car for two days. The wildlife we saw was fantastic, often having to stop the car for elks to pass the road! Or a herd of bison! It was a great chance to practice photography because of the colours in the trees and grass. The geological features were fascinating with informative visitor centres and boards telling you about the area. Old faithful was a bit of a let down as I have seen many geysers before and, although it went off when planned, the surrounding crowds, car parks and buildings . Read the complete review

In June last year our family were lucky enough to have the opportunity of spending a few months in the Western United States. Our journey began in Tucson and ended in Canada. On the way north we spent 10 days in Yellowstone national park. So I hope you are sitting comfortably whilst I transport on a whirlwind tour of this amazing park! Firstly a few facts ***************** Yellowstone is situated mainly in Wyoming?s northwestern corner but spills over into Idaho to the west and Montana to the northeast. The park measures 60 miles by 50 miles .The park centres on a 7,500-foot plateau, which was created by an enormous volcanic explosion 650,000 year ... Read the complete review

Yellowstone National Park is probably the most beautiful place that I have visited. Yes it is chock full of tourists (but I was one of them), but there can’t be many places on Earth which will give you such a rich vein of contrast. Let me explain… I visited Yellowstone in June 1999, having driven over 2 days from Seattle. Upon arrival at Mammoth Springs at the north west, Montana/Wyoming border we booked into a largeish wooden hotel, which reminded me of a cross between the hotel in “The Shining” and “The Waltons” (a scary concoction!). It was quite cheap too, no dearer than a motel. Here we made our base, even though the ... Read the complete review
