Yellowstone National Park turns 140 today! The park was established by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872 — the first national park in the world! It has been enjoyed by generations from across the entire planet — and its majority lies within our own boundaries in Wyoming. Idaho and Montana also contain portions of the park. The Yellowstone Caldera is the largest supervolcano on the continent, and because of this the ongoing thermal activity makes Yellowstone a site to behold — 60% of the world’s geysers reside in the park, including world renowned Old Faithful.
Many people have memories and stories of Yellowstone National Park, and we’d love to celebrate its birthday today by hearing your stories! Did you visit as a child? In different seasons? Do you remember the 1988 Yellowstone fires? As a child, our family visited the summer after the fires, in 1989. It was quite the experience!
Please share your stories, photos and memories with us, and we will add them to this blog! Post here, on our Facebook page, our Twitter page (@wyolifestylemag), or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Happy Birthday Yellowstone — May you live long and wow millions more with your wonders!
