Yellowstone Park Wildlife Guide

Yellowsone Geysers & Hot Springs

Nothing represents “natural wonders” quite like natural hot springs and geysers. Yellowstone is home to about half of the world’s geysers—the largest concentration on earth!—including the famous Old Faithful. After a day of tromping through the park watching these geysers erupt, you can relax with a soak in any number of the area’s hot springs.
