Our First National Park
July 07, 2011
I just returned from my first visit to Yellowstone National Park, and what an amazing place! It was our nation’s very first National Park and it’s easy to see why. There are photographic opportunities everywhere, from the spectacular scenery to the wildlife. Yellowstone contains approximately one-half of the world’s hydrothermal features. There are over 10,000, including over 300 geysers, in the park. That’s more geysers than in all the rest of the world. And if you like to hike, there are trails to suit everyone.
Check out Day Hikes in Yellowstone National Park: 82 Great Hikes by Robert Stone to find the ones right for you. I hope you get to visit this World Heritage Site in the very near future; it’s truly a national treasure.
