Yellowstone Park tours are popular throughout the world. Yellowstone tours will certainly lead you to colorful hot springs, sky blue warm and hot springs, geysers, steam, water falls you name it. Because of wildlife, flora, and its scenic beauty, people come for Yellowstone tours from around the world.
When you tour Yellowstone on your own or with a guide, make sure you see some of these features: Calcite Springs in the Upper Loop lies within the Yellowstone River near Tower Falls. Lamar Valley is home to bison and many other animals such as wolves, bears, coyote and mountain goats. Mammoth Hot Springs was a military fort in the early 1900s. It is the Headquarters of Yellowstone National Park. It has a hotel and hot springs that will be worth your while seeing.
Norris Geyser Basin has the famous Steamboat Geyser and so many other thermal features that will interest you. On your way to Yellowstone from Norris, there is a small but beautiful water falls, Gibbon Falls. Further down after you pass the falls, there is a beautiful valley with the Gibbon River running through it. You may see elk, some times bears and bison. You may want to see the Black Sand Basin. It has intermittent geysers, blue warm springs and the colorful Emerald Pool. Lake Yellowstone is 400 feet deep in some places and it is 21 miles long. It is a beautiful lake to stop by in the afternoon. The Absroka mountains in the background make it even more beautiful with the afternoon sun shining on the water and mountain. You could see steam coming out of the edges of the lake. Steam from the volcanic magma comes out into the lake itself as well, through an intricate silicon miniature plumbing with has built over a period of thousands of years.
In the Grand Tetons you may see bears around Coulter Bay area, between Jackson Lake Lodge and Jackson Lake Dam. In the willow bushes, you might see elk as well. The Tetons have a history which I have discussed in other blogs. It is worth driving by the Jenny Lake Scenic Drive, where you will see the Cathedral Group of Mountains up close. Look for Pronghorn antelope in Teton Park, you may see them grazing in the sage brushes.
