Yellowstone is officially recognized as America's first National Park, established in 1872. This historic act of conservation has been instrumental in protecting some of the most fragile wildlife species and wilderness areas that are a vital part of America's national heritage. Yellowstone is also home to the largest active geyser field in the world. In addition to a wide variety of steam vents, mud pots, and hot springs, there are about 10,000 active geysers here, nearly 300 of which erupt yearly. As you explore the park, visit the Upper, Lower, Midway and Norris Geyser Basins to see some extraordinary natural phenomena you won't find anywhere else on earth. Explore the park by car, on horseback, or on foot, and take advantage of guided hikes and information centers that can help you interpret the extraordinary sights around you. Come to Yellowstone during any season of the year and leave with lasting memories and a greater understanding of the natural world.
Here are a few additional suggestions of things to do in Yellowstone:
-Visit Dragon's Mouth Spring: There are several notable water and rock formations in the Mud Volcano area, but Dragon's Mouth Spring is among the most fascinating. A natural spring fills a cave on the side of the mountain, and heated gases rise to the surface and hurl the waters against the cave walls like a lashing tongue.
There are plenty of places to stay on the Montana side of Yellowstone National Park. Find a vacation rental in the local towns near the park entrance, or rent a cozy cabin in the mountains close to the best trails and scenic overlooks.
