Yellowstone National Park

There are hundreds of waterfalls in the park, the largest of them are located in the Grand Canyon Upper (Upper Yellowstone Falls, 33 meters high) and Lower Yellowstone Falls (Lower Yellowstone Falls). The height of the latter is 94 meters, which is higher than the famous Niagara Falls in the state of New York.

A continental divide passes through the territory of Yellowstone National Park, the rivers flowing here belong to the basins of both the Pacific (Snake River) and Atlantic (Yellowstone River) oceans.

Yellowstone National Park is one of the few vast territories in the United States (and in the world) where nature has been preserved undamaged by human activity. The park is the main component of the so-called “Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem”, which also includes the nearby Grand Teton National Park, several state-protected forests and steppe areas.

In the forests (mostly coniferous) and on the mountain meadows of Yellowstone, you can find almost two thousand species of plants, including exotic ones. A very serious danger to Yellowstone Park is posed by recurring forest fires; in 1988, more than a third of the park’s territory was affected by fire.

The fauna of Yellowstone National Park is considered the richest in the territory of the continental United States. Grizzly bears, wolves, lynxes, cougars, coyotes, wolverines, bison (the bison herd in Yellowstone is the oldest and largest in the United States), elk, elk deer, white-tailed (Virginian) and black-tailed deer, pronghorn antelopes, bighorn sheep and many other mammals.

More than three hundred species of birds live in the park (including the bald eagle – one of the symbols of the United States). There are a lot of fish in the rivers and lakes of Yellowstone, among which Yellowstone trout is especially valued by anglers (unlike hunting, fishing under special licenses is allowed in the park).

Yellowstone National Park is one of the most popular attractions in the United States, with over four million tourists visiting in recent years. The park has several hotels and campsites, shops, tourist information centers and museums.

About five hundred kilometers of hard-surfaced roads have been laid across the territory of the reserve, although most of them are closed to wheeled vehicles from November to April (in winter, they move here mainly on snowmobiles).

For tourists, most of whom visit Yellowstone in the summer, hiking is organized (more than one thousand eight hundred kilometers of hiking trails are equipped here); boating is available on the lake (and a small section of the Lewis River); numerous viewing platforms are equipped (including those near hot springs).

Since 1978, Yellowstone National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
