Yellowstone National Park
(10)
The wildlife at Yellowstone National Park is really amazing: wild bison, elk, herds of deer, and more. I'm not sure, but I'd imagine the name "yellow stone" must come from all the colors in the geyser and hot springs. Given the volcanic activity, the springs are constantly evolving. The forest, though, is the same untouched wilderness as it has been for generations, except for a few traces from the Great Fire of 1988.
Waterfalls in Yellowstone National Park
Lower Falls
(4)
Located in the northeast of Yellowstone, these waterfalls are really striking. The Yellowstone River canyon is spectacular, about 1000 meters deep and down which two enormous waterfalls tumble (Lower and Upper). The best views are on the Inspiration Point. Both waterfalls are perfectly accessible from parking areas, walking a few feet. The Lower Falls, which are much higher and spectacular, seen from above, having the option to move closer, down stairs wall bordering cañón.Merece worth making the effort. In the north we find the lookout Lookout and down this viewpoint Red Rock, the closest view of the falls. On the north we can walk the path Brink of Lower Falls. In the south is the Artistic Point lookout and along the way Uncle Tom's Trail, descending stairs, we have a close up of the waterfall. The best time to see them is early in the day.
Volcanoes in Yellowstone National Park
Grand Prismatic Spring
(9)
Before I visited Yellowstone in 2011 I had seen the famous image from National Geographic of the Grand Prismatic from the air. Well, I did not have the funds to charter a plane but I wanted to get a good photo of the spring. My first visit was both awe inspiring and disappointing because at ground level it was difficult to photograph the spring in a way that did it justice. I learned the next day that the hill behind the spring was accessible by a rugged trail. My wife and niece and I climbed to the top of the hill to take this shot. It may not be the same as the aerial image but I am quite proud of this image because it turned out well and because of what I had to do to get the shot.

Lower Geyser Basin
(4)
We knew approximately what time the earth was due to erupt so there were thousands of people waiting at a distance as the hour approached. And right on time, the Great Geyser made its appearance. Of course, the punctuality is one of the selling points of the park.
Canyons in Yellowstone National Park
Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
(5)
I really enjoyed staying at one of the cabins near Yellowstone Lake within the park. Taking hikes around the area took me to see grazing bison, waterfalls, and some truly amazing viewpoints. The sun overhead illuminated the water in spectacular ways, creating beautiful rainbows, and I was overwhelmed by the stunning scenery. And of course there are the geysers, and the Yellowstone River Canyon which contains fossils from ancient deserts and seas...the information centers here are very helpful, so you can easily find the answers to whatever questions you might have.

Morning Glory Pool
(1)
This natural wonder is located in Yellowstone National Park in the state of Wyoming. It is a geothermal water pool of extraordinary colors caused by the bacteria that grow there. On rare occasions, it swells into a geyser. I recommend visiting.

Lower Geyser Basin
(4)
The main attraction of the Lower Basin is the Fountain Paint Pot, a huge pool of bubbling mud that seems to resemble a big, eternally boiling pot. A circular path of wooden walkways, 0.6 miles long, runs along the transparent Silex Spring and offers a beautiful view overlooking this place, which seems like a lunar landscape. The Great Fountain Geyser is one of the most powerful geysers in the area, with eruptions capable of reaching 150 feet in the air. They occur every 8-12 hours and continue for 45-60 minutes.

Steamboat Geyser
About halfway between the Canyon and the area of ​​the geysers, Norris Basin is home to the hottest springs that you'll find in the park. You can take one of two different paths from the Visitors' Center, leading you to the Porcelain Basin and the Black Basin, where you'll find the Steamboat Geyser. A wooden walkway around 2.5km long runs between springs and the large, unpredictable geysers, including the Steamboat Geyser. It is considered the world's most active geyser, but it has been dormant for almost 50 years. Along the way, you can admire the beautiful colors of the Emerald Spring. Meanwhile, the 800 meter Porcelain Basin pass winds through bubbling pools of mud, offering great views.

Tower Falls
(2)
Starting from the Canyon and heading toward Roosevelt, you'll often see grizzly bears. The traffic moves slowly when this happens, as people stop to take photos! After the junction with the road from Lamar Valley, you'll reach the beautiful Tower Falls, which fall into a small canyon. A short trail leads to a viewpoint above them, while the base is inaccessible. Just behind them is the Roosevelt visitor center.

Mt. Washburn and Dunraven Pass
(2)
The road from Mammoth reaches Roosevelt and continues to Canyon Village, passing along the highest point in Yellowstone that is accessible by car. You'll see dense forests, meadows, alpine lakes, and beautiful views of Mount Washburn (3,122 meters high). The climb winds up the slopes of Mount Washburn to the Dunraven Pass (a popular spot for bear-spotting), and down to Canyon Village through a surreal landscape of petrified forests, because of the devastating fires in recent years.

Hayden Valley
(2)
The Hayden Valley is home to abundant wildlife, with its large meadows crossed by the Yellowstone River attracting herds of bison, deer and elks. It's a beautiful scenic spot located about halfway between Canyon and Lake Village, where a bend in the river offers great views of the meadows and thick pine forests, with the high mountains in the background. Be patient when driving in the area: a bison often steps out into the road, bringing traffic to a halt until he decides to start moving again.

Yellowstone Lake

Summer 2015 we took the family to Yellowstone National Park. It was our first visit. One of my favorite drives took us by Yellowstone Lake. The largest freshwater lake at over 7000 ft in elevation. My family loves to travel and camp.
