John Muir once said, "No temple made with hands can compare with Yosemite"
He was right. Our National Parks are our nation's natural jewels, our sanctuaries, our timeless treasures. Established in 1872 with the debut of Yellowstone, America now boasts 58 National Parks each a protected land that is as rare, varied and undeniably beautiful as they come.

Refuges for wildlife, plants and ecosystems and renowned for their extraordinary geological features, our National Parks are, simply put, the best that nature has to offer.

And the best part? They're right in your backyard.
The Magic of Yellowstone National Park
Remember Dorothy's words sung over and over as she skipped along the yellow brick road? "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!" Had she been in the magical northwest corner of Wyoming instead of the Land of Oz, she might have been singing, "Geysers, hot springs, fumaroles, mud pots! Elk and moose and grizzlies, oh MY!"

That's right they're all here in Yellowstone National Park, and by the thousands. 10,000 geo-thermal wonders half of all that exist in the entire world. 2,000 buffalo. 20,000 elk. Plus a waterfall twice as high as Niagara Falls, a park that's larger than two entire states, more than 1,000 miles of trails and historic hotels built for the well-to-do a century ago including the largest log structure in the world, the enormous Old Faithful Inn.
