Yellowstone National Park Volcano; Idaho, Wyoming, Montana

Each year, millions of people willingly visit an active volcano for the scenic beauty, wildlife and geothermal activity.

Yellowstone, the mother of all National Parks, stretches for 3,468.4 square miles (8,983 sq km) and features lakes, canyons, rivers and mountains that were formed by the activity of a supervolcano (also called a Caldera) over the past 17 million years.  Today, Yellowstone is a dynamic ecosystem situated on an active volcano, fueled by half of the world’s entire geothermal activity.

Yellowstone was recognized as the first National Park in the world in 1872 after many explorers and artists helped the area gain exposure.

People from across the globe flock to the park for a number of fun activities for people of all ages and physical abilities.
