Yellowstone National Park was the first national park. And, it is the largest national park in the lower 48 states at almost 3500 square miles, mostly in Wyoming and parts of Montana and Idaho.
Yellowstone contains about half the world’s geysers and other thermal features. It also is home to grizzly bears, wolves, bison and elk. Yellowstone is truly a park of superlatives and a worthy destination for landscape and wildlife photographers.
Photographs of Yellowstone National Park
I hope these photographs taken throughout the park and in different seasons reflect the enormity and grandeur I felt when I was there.
Where to go in Yellowstone
Yellowstone is a park for all seasons; but, I personally like to avoid summer and the many visitors that flock to the park. That means that cerain amenities and roads may be unavailable and alternative transportation may be needed.
Geology of Yellowstone
Geology, more specifically, volcanism is the cause of Yellowstone’s geysers, hot springs, hot spots, and other thermal features. If you want to learn more, the NPS has a nice overview of the geologic processes at work, along with numerous references and additional resources.
