Established in 1872 as the world's first national park, Yellowstone is
named for the river which flows northward through the region.
Nestled in the Rockies at 7,700 feet above sea level, the park sprawls
across northwestern Wyoming, with parts spilling over into southern
Montana and eastern Idaho. About two million visitors tour the park
annually to view its famous landmarks and enjoy its 2.2 million acres of
unspoiled wilderness. Yellowstone boasts the highest concentration
of geysers, hot springs, and other hydrothermal features in the world,
including the famous Old Faithful geyser. Popular activities
include camping, hiking, flyfishing, and snowmobiling as well as
photography, mountain climbing, and boating. Snow coach and
horseback tours are also favorites.
