It's October in Wyoming, and it will be snowing here soon. We're in Jackson Hole, one of my favorite ski areas in the country. I've been here several times in the winter and have been challenged by the incredible mogul skiing this resort offers. This time, however, my purpose is to explore the national parks with my family. With camera gear in tow, we hit the road and head to Grand Teton National Park. This should be fun!
When I planned my trip to Yellowstone, the first thing that popped into my mind was seeing Old Faithful. After doing my research, however, I soon discovered that this national park has a treasure trove of wildlife. There is an extensive variety of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians that exist within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Today we are going to get a feel for what is out there.
I've finally made it to Yellowstone National Park after seeing photos of the geysers, reading about them, watching videos and talking to people throughout the years. Today we're going to see firsthand how this unique part of the world is a manifestation of a hotspot below the earth's crust. Let's do it!
