Yellowstone National Park is located in the northwest corner of Wyoming. It is one of America's earliest national parks and was set to protect its unique geology, habitats and wildlife. There are over 100 thermal features scattered amongst the landscape including mudpots, hot springs, fumaroles and geysers spouting steaming water up to 300 feet in the air. The caldera that Yellowstone sits on top of was formed 640 thousand years ago when a volcano last erupted spewing ash everywhere near the area.

If you're looking for an outdoor adventure and some stunning natural scenery, then you need to add Yellowstone National Park to your list of places to visit. With its dramatic landscapes, abundant wildlife and geothermal features, the park offers something for everyone. So get your hiking boots ready and start planning your trip!
