natural ecosystem where elk, bison, bighorn sheep, moose, wolves, and
bears are free to roam in their natural habitat. High rising mountain
ranges, a rugged canyon, and broad scenic valleys support an array of
trees, plants, and wildflowers.
The same geological forces that molded the terrain formed the geysers, hot springs, and mud pots that make this a truly unique land. Take the first step toward new experiences and
opportunities. Revitalize your senses in the natural world, exploring new
fields of knowledge and endless terrain. Yellowstone offers you an
