Travel tips you can trust
Yellowstone National Park
It is the first officially designated national park on our planet. And it boasts world-class natural features.
Each is described in more deail on page two.

Yellowstone (see photo)
(including bears and bison)
Mid- to late-September
This is the best all around time for a visit as the weather is pleasant and the tourist count is relatively light.
July and August
These are the two busiest months. Be forewarned, traffic jams are common on both the roads and the pedestrian sightseeing boardwalks.
The least desirable season is winter. It can be quite cold and many roads are snow blocked.
Mini bucket list
If you can only make a short visit, I recommend you see and experience at least these six Yellowstone National Park attractions:
Old Faithful Geyser
Mud pools (various locations)
Grand Canyon (Yellowstone)
Norris Geyser Basin
Hayden or Lamar Valleys (wildlife)
Mammoth Hot Springs
