A trip to the United States of America is not complete without visiting Yellowstone National Park. Spread over 9000 square kilometres, the park extends into Idaho and Montana along with Wyoming. The whole of the national park is based around the Yellowstone Lake and Cradle, the largest active super volcano of the American continent. It houses some of the most picturesque lakes, canyons and mountains. The park is home to innumerable flora and fauna, many of which are endangered. Once inhabited by Native American tribes, the park and it’s areas were discovered by early 18th century. We take you on a photographic tour of this beautiful National Park, preserved through so many centuries.
Old Faithful Geyser
Any visit to the park is not complete without visiting the Old Faithful Geyser in the Upper Geyser Basin. The Old Faithful is so named because it roots erupts more frequently than any other geyser. The average is about 91 minutes and the water teachers heights of 150 metres. It is one of the most picturesque geysers and some bison can also be seen grazing nearby.
The Hayden Valley houses innumerable herds of bison and elk. The crystal blue waters of the Yellowstone Lake stream through the valley as lush green grazing planned are found on both sides.
