The Yellowstone National Park, USA is one of the world’s oldest National Park and USA’s first. It was established in 1872. It covers 3,468.4 square miles. The park has canyons, geysers, lush forests, alpine rivers, hot springs along with hundreds of animal species that are taken care of by the doctors at regular intervals. Construction which could’ve led to commercialization of the park was discouraged at every step. People in charge of taking care of the massive national park are adamant on keeping it unaltered by human interference, relishing its closeness to nature at its best. Some fun facts I learned about this national park,
- If you drive every road in the park, you would’ve travelled only 1% of the park.
- It has half of the world’s geysers.
- It was earlier known by the name ‘Wonderland’.
- More than a third of Yellowstone, including Grand Prismatic Spring, sets within the caldera of a giant ancient, yet still active volcano.
It is my dream destination to photograph. Come fall in love with nature!
