Virtual Travel: Explore Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone is the first National Park, established in 1872. It is also one of the most famous and one of the most visited of the U.S. national parks. People all over the world hear about Yellowstone and its geysers, hot springs, and thermal pools. I feel lucky that I’ve had the chance to visit Yellowstone National Park.

Yellowstone National Park isn’t just the Old Faithful geyser or the Grand Prismatic Spring. The park is filled with so many other features, elements, and landscapes that don’t get as much attention as its most famous landmarks. The mighty Yellowstone River and its waterfalls are a sight to see in the “Grand Canyon of Yellowstone”. Yellowstone Lake is vast, and perfect for summer activities. You can also expect to see a variety of wildlife throughout the park, whether it’s roaming bison or herds of elk and pronghorn.

Basically, you really need to visit Yellowstone National Park right away. It’s just all-around amazing. From the geysers to the wildlife to incredible hiking opportunities, this park is not to be missed.

If it’s not already on your bucket list, hopefully these 20 photos will inspire your to visit Yellowstone National Park soon.
