Yellowstone National Park
A visit to Yellowstone can be considered a success if it elicits romantic visions of backcountry expeditions in the spirit of Western legends like Jim Bridger and Teddy Roosevelt. By embracing Yellowstone, you're opening yourself up to the essential American frontier experience, for which there is neither substitute nor rival. Yellowstone is home to continental America's largest collection of mega-fauna, half of the planet's geothermal hotspots, and nearly 2,000 species of plants, and Yellowstone Caldera is one of the world's largest super volcanos, a snarling beast that never ceases to spew lava, rock, and steam onto the earth's surface. Yellowstone is nothing short of America the Beautiful.
