Project Sharing: Yellowstone National Park


Nestled between three states (Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho), beautiful Yellowstone is America's first national park.  It is the home to a number of exciting wildlife species, including moose, bison, grizzly bears, elk, deer, wolves, and a large variety of birds.
 


Yellowstone is an active volcano and experiences approximately 2000 earth quakes each year.  It's natural wonders are a sight to behold, with more than 10,000 geysers, hot springs and fumaroles.  Yellowstone is the largest concentration of hydrothermal features in the world.




Being there in person (with a camera) was a dream.  I found it extremely facinating to watch through my lense, this active volcano, spewing forth heat and steam from beneath the earths surface; the process of land formation at its finest, and right before my eyes!  I am in awe of the parks powerful rivers and majestic waterfalls, it's serene mountain grandeur and beautiful lakes.  Yellowstone is a unique glimpse into the work of Mother Nature, that will most definitely take your breath away!
