Yellowstone National Park

How do you describe an icon? First spotted in 1807 by Lewis and Clark, words can hardly do justice to Yellowstone National Park, one of Mother Nature’s finest creations. Dynamic geothermal forces lurking just below the surface gave rise to its dramatic collection of mountains, rivers, canyons, springs and geysers, all surrounded by a tapestry of animals, from the largest mammals to the smallest birds. Its allure is great, evidenced by the hordes who visit every year, but it’s possible to carve out a space of your very own in this majestic park if you plan your trip wisely.
