Yellowstone is one of the most visited National Parks in the US. You can tell the animals are even used to it with Buffalo walking along side your car. Some parts are still recovering from huge Wildfires a decade ago or others not so long. Other areas are still pristine and Beautiful. You get a little bit of everything. Its worth seeing at least once.

A place so iconic that it practically defines the American West, the mammoth Yellowstone National Park is a stunning mix of high mountains, rushing rivers and streams, gorgeous meadows, crashing waterfalls, crystal-clear lakes and tons and tons of geothermal activity (think geyers, hotsprings, and pots of bubbling mud everywhere). An astonishing and gorgeous place that one could easily spend weeks exploring and barely scratch the surface.

Even at the end of May, yellowstone still has quite a lot of snow on the mountain and it was only about 40 degree.

Beautiful park with SO much to see. Old Faithful is the iconic attraction, but it really was so minimal in the whole scheme of things. Definitely check out the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and Grand Prismatic Spring. Gorgeous!

A wonderland of amazing scenery and animals - great for families, photographers, adventurers, explorers of all ages! Want to know a secret? Winter in Yellowstone is fabulous - fewer people and the contrast of snow and scenery is breathtaking. Spring and fall are also times that are over looked where you don't have to compete with the summer crowds to see the wildlife or tour. Make your reservations at the Yellowstone Park Riverfront Cabins EARLY to get the dates you want.

Looking for a place to take your kids on vacation where they can check out cool things and learn a few new things? Or taking a road trip like we did? It's a neat stop to check out all of the hot pools and geysers. Hopefully you'll get to see one erupt! But even if you don't, you'll get to see all of the pools majestic colors. May not be the most exciting place for kids but it's a great learning experience for them.

Like Yosemite, Yellowstone National Park is a must-see area of the United States. Old Faithful aside Yellowstone has great forests, water, and history. It's also sitting on one of the biggest calderas in North America. Pray that it never blows because that will destroy most of the United States! ;)

A spectacular park. Full of wildlife, and unique sights like geysers, springs, and unforgettable falls. You will need a car to move about the park, and that takes time as other cars move very slow, and there are often sights to see every several miles or so. It makes sense to stay at different places around the park during your trip as driving between them unnecessarily will waste a lot of time. Definitely try to do one night up near Tower Falls, and one night either at Grant or Old Faithful down south. Also make sure you know where the gas stations are as this might take a bit of planning.
Xanterra is a private company that runs the campgrounds. You can reserve grounds ahead of time online which is recommended as they are cheap. Otherwise the National Park Service (NPS) also keeps some open as first come first serve spots, and usually if you wake up early you can go to a campground and get one even during the high season, bit it is a bit risky because they are definitely full by mid-morning/mid-day. The lodges are expensive, but the Old Faithful Inn will allow you to use their showers for a small fee which are really nice.
One of America's brightest gems, go see it!!!

America's first national park, and probably its most famous. Yellowstone sits atop one of the more active volcanic regions in the world. This geological activity provides for Yellowstone's famous geysers, and hot springs. However, the park is much more than this. The amazing forest that covers much of the park provides endless hours of hiking and exploration. The park is also home to a lot of wildlife, and if you are lucky you might catch a sighting of deer, big horn sheep, elk, and bison.
