Montana Shaped by Geysers
“What's really special about being in Yellowstone and watching the Bison or watching a bear and cubs is that there's something timeless and almost eternal about it. You're watching that bear play today and you know that almost one thousand years ago the same thing was going on.”— John Shier, Wildlife Cinematographer
Entering the Park from Montana's gateway towns, you'll find that Yellowstone is a distinct environment. You know when you're there. With over 10,000 thermal features, you can watch as steaming geysers erupt in all their glory—all year long.
With each season in the Park offering a diversity of rewards, witness bison calves as they discover their new surroundings in the springtime. By mid-summer, the Park's flora and fauna sprinkle the landscape with color and movement. Autumn's golden daylight is enhanced by the sound of bugling elk. In winter months, cross-country skiing or a guided snowcoach or snowmobile tour in Yellowstone National Park is unforgettable—a meshing of steaming hot springs, mudpots, geysers and snow shared with little more than an array of wildlife.
Just what you'd expect from a place where little has changed since it opened over 135 years ago—2.2 million acres of steaming geysers, thundering waterfalls, crystalline lakes, and panoramic vistas.
