Yellowstone National Park brings to mind images of stunning landscapes dominated by unique geological formations. Located primarily in the state of Wyoming in the western United States, this sprawling park is a UNESCO World Heritage site. From gushing geysers to colorful hot springs to grizzly bears and bison, it’s all here. Cascading waterfalls and magnificent canyons complete the picture. Hikers and bikers have a pick of trails to explore the wilderness while horseback riding awaits the more adventurous. Boardwalks and well-maintained pathways meander past fumaroles, geysers, and hot springs letting you get up close. Meanwhile, the park’s network of waterways including the azure Yellowstone Lake is ideal for boating and fishing. The onset of winter promises a whole new array of experiences ranging from snowmobile tours to skiing. The town of Jackson, with all the trappings of urbanity, is about an hour’s drive away from the park’s south entrance.
