Planning Travel to Yellowstone National Park?
Yellowstone National Park is a fun and attractive destination for many people, especially for families. It officially became a national park in 1872 with 3,400 square miles of area, with many geysers, hot springs, wildlife, vistas, rivers, lakes and other attractions. The park is actually located across three states from Montana, Idaho to Wyoming, but most of it is in Wyoming. People can do many things following the rules of the park, like wildlife watching, sightseeing, fishing, camping, skiing, lodging, gold panning, rock hounding and other activities.
It will be wise to find out more traveling and local information about the park before actually taking the trip. There are plenty of information on the web about the transportation and traveling information. You will need to decide on the transportation to whether drive your car, take a flight and then rent a car, or other methods. It will be necessary to check the weather and road conditions if you are planning to drive to the park, especially during winter. If you are planning to fly to the area, there are many airlines that can access the local airports like Cody Airport of Wyoming, Jackson Hole Airport of Wyoming, and Bozeman Airport of Montana. For accommodations, there are options for staying in a hotel, lodging, or camping. You can call a traveling agent and the park office for more information.
There are many attractions in the park such as Bear World, Dragon Mouth, Mud Geysers, Yellowstone Lake, Trout Lake Madison River, and Grand Canyon of Yellowstone Park. Bear World is where you can see the wild bears feeding and playing. There is spectacular water surge to over 100 feet high with the Dragon Mouth attraction. You will also find Mud Geysers fun for watching the steaming mud activities.
Wild animals are abundant in the park like around Lamar and Hayden Valley, Trout Lake and Madison River. You can see wild animals such as deer, moose, elks, coyotes, wolves, bighorn sheep, birds, or even grizzly bears. Be cautious about female animals with their cubs, because they can protect their cubs and become wild if you get too close to them.
Prepare your camera and camcorder to capture the wonderful and beautiful scenery and wildlife. If you prepare and plan the trip properly, the trip will be a pleasant and joyous trip for you and your family. As we mentioned, there are many helpful sources of information about the Yellowstone Park for transportation, accommodation, food, sightseeing and activities from the web, travel agents, and the park office.
