There are only a few other places on this planet that has geo-thermal activity similar to Yellowstone. And this is one of only a few “super” volcanoes, and that means that if it blows then most of the US population will be gone. I’ve been watching news reports about Yellowstone for several years. There has been hundreds of small earthquakes in the area. Does that mean it could blow soon? No one knows, but smart people are watching. And waiting.
I really went to Yellowstone to see the wildlife, and I was not disappointed.
Be bear aware – the campaign to try and keep tourists to avoid injury at the hands of the beautiful animals that live in the park. I was too close, but I was safely in my car. And momma bear didn’t seem to even notice us. It was a thrill to see them wandering up the hill.
You can’t miss Old Faithful if you drive through Yellowstone. I first saw it when I was 6. Dad assured me there were way fewer people back then.
Above picture is an elk hiding. I didn’t get a good picture because I was keeping a safe distance and wasn’t in my car.
This buffalo was a long way from the road.
Yellowstone is one of many beautiful and amazing national parks in the US. Go and see them. But remember the parks are home to wildlife and you are the guest. Be responsible and respectful. And bring binoculars and a camera with good zoom.
