Yellowstone is a land of extreme diversity. Nowhere else will you find wolves, bison, and grizzlies living among the largest concentration of hot springs and geysers in the world. The park’s 2.2 million acres is an incongruous landscape of bubbling hot, lunar-like geothermal features, lush green rolling meadowlands, snow covered mountain peaks, colorful canyons, waterfalls, lakes and untamed rivers. It is a park so large, so complex and so fascinating it seems fitting that it owns the title as our world’s first national park! Travel Audios’ park approved audio tour will help you understand what you are seeing and smelling! It is not a mile-by-mile guide; it can be listened to anywhere. It features an impressive group of knowledgeable Park Ranger geologists, biologists and naturalists who explain the geological processes that created the landscape and why this area in Wyoming is such a geothermal hot spot. They’ll tell you about their studies and observations of the park’s wildlife and their experience with massive forest fires.
