Yellowstone National Park

Old Faithful Geyser and Morning Glory pool are some of the well known geothermal wonders. Besides these, the Park is a diverse area in which a variety of ecosystems thrive. It is home to a variety of wild animals, including bison, elk, wolves, moose and bears, and exotic birds. One can go camping, hiking, river running or fly fishing. The major attractions include the Grand Loop Road, the Upper Geyser Basin, Mammoth Hot Springs, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and Lake Yellowstone. With its renowned natural splendor and geothermal activity, Yellowstone National Park is a place which needs to be explored and experienced.
National Elk Refuge
The National Elk Refuge is home to one of the world's largest elk herds. In addition to the elk herds, it is also a haven to over 200 species of mammals like bisons, deer, bighorn sheep and wolves, and birds like the trumpeter swans. Although the elks stay in the refuge during winter, the herd disperses to the nearby national parks the rest of the year. During the winter season (from December to April), visitors can enjoy sleigh rides and experience a fun-filled wildlife-viewing though the Elk refuge.
