Visit Yellowstone National Park

You could spend a week or more discovering the natural beauty within America’s first national park, Yellowstone. The 3,472-square-mile park sprawls over Wyoming, Montana and Idaho and features close to 60 percent of the world’s geysers and 150 that erupt within one square mile. Old Faithful is the most popular of the geysers, but not the highest. Four others erupt on regular intervals — Castle, Grand, Daisy and Riverside. Another captivating attraction is the 20-mile Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone with its three waterfalls, one higher than Niagara Falls. The 132-square-mile Yellowstone Lake is the largest lake at high elevation in North America and spans 20 miles in length and 14 miles in width with 141 miles of shoreline. Big Sky is located just 48 miles north of Yellowstone National Park’s west entrance.
