Why you should you go to Yellowstone National Park? …the list is long so stop asking and just go! I’m not sure if there’s enough time to write a blog of all the reasons Yellowstone is a must for anyone's one bucket list, but this national park is simply amazing.
Yellowstone has four entrances and if you started at one and drove to each of them I’m not sure you could do it in one day. This national park is massive and so diverse that it’s hard for my mind to even wrap around it all and I’ve been there.
The West entrance has fields and rivers, the South entrance forest, the East is the lake and bay area and the North mountainous. You can’t visit this park and not think of what an amazing creator God is.
Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter. -Ansel Adams
There are certain areas in the park that are known for its wildlife, Hayden Valley, and the Lamar area. One night I randomly met a group of bear chasers in Hayden Valley, this group of retirees had been to Yellowstone 26 years straight for 3 weeks at a time to find and watch bears.
I made friends with these amazing people and I got to hang out with them every evening to watch grizzly bears. Watching these bears in the wild, was just an amazing experience and reminded that explorers will always have something in common regardless of age or life…they have an adventurous soul longing to discover.
Each day I would wake up at sunrise, grab some coffee, jump in the car, crank up the music, roll down the windows and just drive. I absolutely loved not having a schedule, my cell phone having little service and traveling by myself. I find that when I travel it gives me a clear mind and a chance to really connect with God. When I see His creation in its rawest form, I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for the life He’s given me.
From wading in the rivers shooting baby elk calves to laying in the natural hot springs, to the adrenaline rush of watching grizzly bears feed on a carcass, to watching the sunset, Yellowstone was breath taking! Why You Should Go To Yellowstone National Park….because Yellowstone will NOT disappoint!
You have “understated” the AWE of Yellowstone. Where else can one look down into an Eagle’s aerie? Where can you observe big horn sheep clinging to the sides of a rocky gorge…..and that’s just the first five hours in the park. You can tell which cars just arrived in the park when you see them stopping to photograph a herd of bison. By the second day you’ll be honking your horn to see if you can get them off the road. The entire 5 days I spent in and around the park were a RUSH. Put this number one on your bucket list and then just DO IT!!!!
I just got back from Glacier and Banff solo trip. I agree that nature is awe inspiring. Not even my camera can capture the beauty I beheld.
Please send me some information about the park.Yellow stone Nat. Park
YES!! Tonya, I agree. Where else can you go to see such beautiful diversity of nature? I’ve never been stopped on the road by a herd of bison, until this past summer, in Yellowstone (Jellystone). It was the second week in June and it snowed! Very cool!
