Yellowstone is a beautiful national park, and it features a diverse array of unique wilderness landscapes. One of my favorite places the park is the Hayden Valley, a tract of land that serves as a sort of highlands prairie. There you can see wolves and bears and other animals of the American West. I would advise caution in taking photographs of these animals or having any other interactions with them. It is prudent to keep in mind that these animals are wild and will act in accordance to their nature, (so distance is best when taking pictures.) The park is a majestic preserve of wilderness and it is important to be mindful of that fact... Be Safe! :)
Yellowstone and old faithful!!! What a great vacation. Spending time in the great outdoors and it doesn't get any greater than Yellowstone. The hiking was awesome, we saw all kinds of wild life. We spent 4 days here because we also went to the grand tetons and Jackson hole, and 4 days was not enough. We are definitely coming back.
