Yellowstone Vacations

By: Thomas Morva

Go kayaking in the morning, see grizzlies in the afternoon and enjoy a campfire in the night! These are some of the many activities that a visitor can indulge in at Yellowstone National Park.

Among the more popular things to do at Yellowstone are watching the geysers like old Faithful; attending a rodeo such as the Cheyenne Frontier Days that take place every July and is the largest rodeo show on earth; and going to an Indian powwow. There are many more traditional Native American festivals that take place during the summer months at Yellowstone. Or one can spend the whole vacation camping out since there are numerous camp grounds and RV parks dotting the region in and around the park.

Of course nothing can beat the opportunity to see some of the most magnificent natural wonders in the world. These wonders include the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and waterfalls. They make for some breathtaking views and the beauty of the region is such that even the most amateur photographer will come away with the most spectacular photographs. The opportunity to observe some of the great species of animal life on American continent should not be missed as well. Yellowstone is one of the last places in North America where one can see herds of bison and elk roaming around unmolested and free. The sight of grizzly bears gamboling around in nature along with wolves, moose and bighorn sheep are not to be missed. But do remember to keep your distance. These animals are truly wild and should be treated with respect.

For those with a more adventurous turn of mind, snowmobile expeditions as well cross country skiing during winter and hiking and trekking during summer might be just your cup of tea! Summer treks and hikes that end each night with camping under the stars truly allow the individual to commune with nature and realize its power and beauty. For those who like the quiet life but still yearn to be out there, fly-fishing or a golfing vacation at one of the big resorts in Big Sky, Montana or Jackson, Wyoming would be the right fit.

Plan your vacation well in advance and enjoy some truly unforgettable moments at Yellowstone National Park.
