Yellowstone National Park is known for far more than the most famous geyser in America, Old Faithful. The park has the largest concentration of wildlife in the "Lower 48" including black bears, wolves, wolverine, wild horses, lynx, pronghorn antelope, moose, bison, badgers, otters, fox, trumpeter swans, pelicans, eagles, and close to 500 grizzlies, as well as one of the largest herds of elk in the United States.

The scenic Snake River merges with the Lewis River at the Southern entrance to Yellowstone and flows south into Jackson Lake. Yellowstone Lake, one of the largest high-altitude lakes in North America, is centered over the Yellowstone Caldera, the largest supervolcano on the continent. Half of the world's geothermal features are in Yellowstone. Yellowstone is at the northeastern end of the Snake River Plain, which extends from Boise, Idaho. The park is also home to one of the most remarkable fossil forests in the world.

Established in 1872, this is America’s first national park. It is situated in the northwest corner of Wyoming and is bordered by Idaho and Montana—located in the heart of the Wild West. Yellowstone’s 2.2 million acres receive more than 3 million visitors each year, and it is estimated that one-third of the U.S. population will visit this national park during their lifetime.
