Here’s a trivia question for you. What was America’s first national park? If you guessed Yellowstone, you are absolutely correct. Good job. Well, did you know that it was also the world’s first national park?
Yes, Yellowstone was the first, covering almost 3500 square miles of lakes, rivers, forests &mountain ranges…in what state? If you said Wyoming, you are good… but that’s not a fair question because it also reaches into Idaho and Montana. This is one of the last wide open spaces, where you can see elk, deer, buffalo and more, with not a cage or fence in sight. Yellowstone may be known for its wildlife but it’s famous for its geysers…well, at least one! There she blows! Old Faithful was named in 1870, even before Yellowstone became a national park.
During the Washburn-Langford-Doane expedition, through Northwestern Wyoming, the explorers noticed one geyser was erupting every hour. Also have an adventure on the wagon trail experience crossing the Tetons near Yellowstone National Park where folks, uh, can ride the wagons, ride horses, camp, canoe – there’s just a million things to do, a lot of fun.
A great family experience for young and old alike! You know, sometimes we get so busy with our lives and our jobs and even our vacations that we forget to slow down and just enjoy what nature has to offer, explore Yellowstone!!
