Yellowstone National Park
The world's first - and America's largest - National Park must be seen to be believed! Within its 2.2 million acres lie the greatest collection of geysers on this earth, the largest alpine lake in our nation, the colorful Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River, thundering waterfalls higher than Niagara, petrified forests, trout-laden streams, and an endless array of native wildlife ranging from ground squirrels to grizzly bears. Yellowstone has more natural beauty than you can absorb in a lifetime.
