Filled with breathtaking views everywhere you turn, Yellowstone National Park is unlike any other. Yellowstone was the world’s first national park and is located in parts of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. There are 5 different park entrances that allow over 4 millions visitors to explore the park each year. Visit Yellowstone to enjoy swimming, rafting, biking, fishing, exploring, hiking, camping and sightseeing. If you’re lucky, you will see some wildlife too. Here are a few things to see and do while visiting Yellowstone National Park.
Grand Canyon of Yellowstone
Twenty miles long, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is the most breathtaking sight inside Yellowstone National Park. This canyon widens up to 4,000 feet and is 1,200 feet deep in places. Take a closer look by walking down the stairs to different viewing points. Make sure to view both the Upper and Lower Falls of the canyon.
Grand Prismatic Spring
Deeper than a 10-story building, the Grand Prismatic Spring is the most photographed thermal feature in Yellowstone. Grand Prismatic Spring is larger than a football field and the hot spring has bright bands of orange, green, blue and yellow water. Make sure to stop and take pictures at this beautiful site in Yellowstone National Park. We promise you will never see anything like it ever again!
Old Faithful Geyser
Old Faithful Geyser is a famous icon of Yellowstone National Park. Erupting about every 74 minutes, Old Faithful shoots out hot water from 100-140 feet high. An eruption can last from 1.5 minutes to 4.5 minutes long. During this eruption, 3,7000 to 8,400 gallons of water can be expelled out of the geyser. When visiting Old Faithful Geyser make sure to stand back on the dock because the water temperature has been measured at 204 degrees Fahrenheit with steam reaching temperatures above 350 degrees Fahrenheit! We promise seeing Old Faithful erupt in person is definitely a site you will want to see when visiting Yellowstone.
Mammoth Hot Springs
Next time you decide to visit Yellowstone National Park, Mammoth Hot Springs is a must see! It may look like something out of a fairy tale because it is the remnant of a volcanic explosion that happened over 600,000 years ago. Make sure to visit both the Upper and Lower Terraces at Mammoth Hot Springs. There are about 50 different hot springs that lie within that area.
