Yellowstone National Park has the distinction of being the very first National Park ever formed in the country. It covers almost 3,500 miles, including areas of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Yellowstone sits on top of a dormant volcano and is home to more geysers and hot springs than anywhere else on earth. Those features, along with sweeping views of the Rocky Mountains, and glimpses of a variety of wildlife that call the park home, offer plenty of things to explore within the park.

Since most of Yellowstone is over 6,000 feet above sea level, weather in the park is unpredictable. You can expect rain or snow during every month of the year, so no matter when you visit, bring a warm jacket and rain gear and layer up. Spring and fall temperatures tend to be in the 30s-60sF during the day and drop to the teens and single digits at night. During the summer, temperatures are usually around 70-80F with cool nights that may still drop below freezing. And during the winter, temps can range from 0-20F during the day and dip below zero at night.  

There are several towns outside the park, including the popular vacation destination of Jackson Hole, WY. Whether you want to head out on a horseback ride or fishing trip, or indulge in upscale shopping and dining, you’ll find something to suit your tastes in Yellowstone and the nearby towns.
