Adventures in Yellowstone National Park
Say goodbye to the vacations filled with tourist traps and other over-priced attractions. Yellowstone is one of nature’s most amazing playgrounds—and it’s basically free. Below are some destinations and activities that will entertain everyone.
Experience the Geysers
While this park is home to the largest collection of geysers in the world, Old Faithful is the icon that represents them all. Erupting approximately every 92 minutes, this geyser shoots boiling water up to 185 feet into the air. After watching this incredible eruption, choose one of the trails near Old Faithful to see other fantastic geysers in the Upper Basin, like the following:
See the Upper and Lower Falls
While the park features hundreds of waterfalls, the Upper and Lower Falls are the most spectacular. Lower Falls sends water cascading over a 308-foot cliff—that’s almost twice the height of Niagara Falls. The scenery doesn’t end there, however. These waterfalls are the dramatic entrance to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, a massive canyon that’s 4,000 feet wide and up to 1,200 feet deep.
To see the best views of the canyon by car, do the North and South Rim drives. These drives feature several strategically placed lookouts that will give you breathtaking views of the scenery. Lookouts are the perfect places for snapping pictures, so remember your camera! While you may not have time to stop at all the areas, make sure to visit Lookout Point and Inspiration Point. They offer the best views of the canyon and the waterfalls.
To experience this breathtaking scenery up close and personal, hike Uncle Tom’s trail. This trail takes you from the canyon’s rim down to the bottom of Lower Falls, giving you unparalleled views along the way. Since it takes you into the canyon and back up, the path is steep and rigorous. It also features over 300 stairs, so make sure you have the energy to complete it before you begin. You can access this trail by getting on Artist Point Road and parking in the Artist Point lot. From there follow the signs for the trail.
While the canyons, waterfalls, and geysers of Yellowstone are amazing, save time to do some of the following activities as well:
- Boat at Yellowstone Lake. To cool off after a long day of hiking, rent a boat in the largest high-altitude lake in North America. Nothing beats skimming across the lake’s pristine waters surrounded by some of the world’s most beautiful scenery.
- Admire wildlife. Yellowstone National Park is home to a plethora of animals, including magnificent grizzly bears, elk, wolves, and bald eagles. You can also stop by the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center at the west entrance of the park. Here you’ll get to see many types of wild and rare animals.
- Take a ride on the wild side. White-water rafting is the perfect way to get an adrenaline rush. Whether you’re in the northern or the southern area of the park, it’s easy to find rafting companies ready to give you the grand tour. For a calmer ride, choose the Class I rapids. If you’re ready for an adventure, try Class III, IV, or even V.
