Yellowstone National Park is popular for its geothermal activity, wide range of wildlife, countless possibilities for hiking in the mountains and numerous canyons, lakes, rivers and waterfalls.
It is located in the north-western part of the US. Mostly in Wyoming, with small parts in Montana and Idaho. Part of the Yellowstone National Park called Yellowstone Caldera is an active volcano. Lava and rocks from eruptions cover most of the area of Yellowstone. It has half of the world’s geothermal features.
It stretches on 9000 square km, having a car to drive around is a necessity. Since it is hard to focus on the road, we stopped a lot along the way. Either we could smell a geyser and were looking around to find it, or herd of bison were crossing the road just in front of us. Or there was a mama bear with cubs playing in the forest, there is always a lot to look for.
That is one of the reasons we chose to visit Yellowstone National Park in May. A lot of young ones are being born in spring. They play around with their siblings or parents, hardly keep their legs stable. And the other reason – the main season is slowly starting which means roads, parking lots and campgrounds are not as full.
