Yellowstone National Park spans over 2.2 million acres, has more than 900 miles of hiking trails, and sits on a giant (dormant) volcano. On top of all of that, Yellowstone is home to more geysers and hot springs than any other place on earth; its wilderness encompasses sites such as the Yellowstone Grand Canyon and Old Faithful; and its wildlife sanctuary includes elk, bison, grizzly bears, wolves, beavers, eagles, and America’s largest buffalo herd.
As if the scenery wasn’t enough, the park offers a range of activities for visitors, including camping, hiking, backpacking, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, wildlife watching, bicycling, and llama trekking.
