That's what we kept telling ourselves as we went through park. It's just incredible how diverse the geography is.  We came in through the north entrance and made our way through park and out the south entrance. 

Tip:  Some of the roads were closed which made our drives a quite a bit longer than expected, so be smart and check to see when roads are closed... we didn't :(

I'll leave a lot of the descriptions of all the sites to some others, but i just wanted to share a couple of photos from our recent trip there.

Love the photos JR. My wife and I had a chance to visit Yellowstone back in 2000. We even got to spend a night at the Old Faithful Inn which was really neat because my parents stayed there on their honeymoon back in 1948. The park is just so darn large. You really need a minimum of 3 or 4 days to do it justice. We hope to be able to get back there some day.

World's 1st National Park
Yellowstone National Park is the world's first national park. Grand Canyon is the national park which I'm most impressed with in the United States. Ever since the visits to Grand Canyon & the Canadian Rockies, I was hooked! This happened more than a decade ago. It's strange... before this, I was only interested in city-hoppings. I have never had any inclination to visit the parks, let alone a national park. But the Grand Canyon changed all that.      Since then, …

A national park of immense beauty and variety. First national park in the world & Y. Caldera is the largest supervolcano on the continent.

About this place

Wiki

 Yellowstone National Park, established by the U.S. Congress as a national park on March 1, 1872, is located primarily in the U.S. state of Wyoming, though it also extends into Montana and Idaho. The park was the first of its kind, and is known for its wildlife and its many geothermal features, especially Old Faithful Geyser, one of the most popular features in the park. It has many types of ecosystems, but the subalpine forest is dominant.

Indigenous Americans have lived in the Yellowstone region for at least 11,000 years. The region was bypassed during the Lewis and Clark Expedition in the early 1800s. Aside from visits by mountain men during the early to mid-1800s, organized exploration did not begin until the late 1860s. The U.S. Army was commissioned to oversee the park just after its establishment. In 1917, administration of the park was transferred to the National Park Service, which had been created the previous year. Hundreds of structures have been built and are protected for their architectural and historical significance, and researchers have examined more than 1,000 archaeological sites.

Yellowstone National Park spans an area of 3,468 square miles (8,980 km2), comprising lakes, canyons, rivers and mountain ranges. Yellowstone Lake is one of the largest high-altitude lakes in North America and...
