Minutes after we entered the park we encountered a mother buffalo and her baby jogging in the road. We began to see the landscape change as we moved through old burned forests and lush fields filled with buffalo and elk.
Some of the greatest mineral formations can be found here, as well as some of the most famous geysers in the world. One thing is certain: seeing is believing.
We saw many geologic wonders and wild animals coexisting in this magical environment. This trip made me realize that our national parks are the jewels of our country. If it weren’t for past presidents preserving these areas, they may have been destroyed long ago.
I hope the photos I have shared inspire you to visit Yellowstone, or any national park for that matter.
