Yellowstone Park – 1

Boiling Mud

Old Faithful

Yellowstone National Park was established in 1872 and is the first national park in the world. It is also situated over an active volcano as there is much geothermal  activity in the park in the form of geysers and numerous hot pools. The park is very large and is actually larger than the states of Rhode Island or Delaware. There is geothermal activity in many areas of the park but the most active geysers are in the southern portion which is where we spent our first day.
