An outstanding mountain region with clean water and air and home to some spectacular wildlife including the grizzly bear, antelope, bobcat, wolf, and free-ranging herds of bison and elk. Its location on top of a volcanic crater has resulted in a unique landscape of geysers, fumaroles, mud pots, alpine lakes and canyons. Yellowstone, named the first national park back inn 1872, is still as poplar as ever. Probably its most famous attraction, Old Faithful, this spectacular steaming geyser bursts into life firing thousands of gallons of hot water into the air and has been erupting consistently for over 100 years. Visit Fountain Paint Pot, a large bubbling spring filled with hot clay ranging in color from white to orange to pink, marvel at some of the hundreds of thunderous cascading waterfalls, hike the Grand Loop Road to Artist Point where you’ll encounter magnificent views of Yellowstone Canyon and the awe inspiring Lower Falls that, despite their name, are nearly twice the height of Niagara Falls. Home to some stunning scenery, this region near Dubois ranges from dense forests filled with beautiful wildlife to dramatic canyons and rock formations of natural wonders that have inspired countless generations.
Often over shadowed by its neighbour, Grand Teton National Park should not be overlooked. The stunning backdrop of the Teton Mountain range creates a perfect setting to view the diversity of wildlife including buffalo, moose and bear. The sophisticated resort town of Jackson surrounds the rustic character stretching to wooden sidewalks and welcoming classic swing-door saloons where cowboy hats and boots are the norm. It is like walking onto a film set, the town’s lively summer persona includes re-enactment of frontier justice with well-played gunfights in the square and as a prime ranching country, the steaks are simply legendary! A premier ski spot in winter with near perfect fluffy powder snow, with its twin peaks, gloriously uncrowded ski lifts and superb variety of cross-country trails, experts and intermediates alike will find the experience unforgettable! Perhaps you’ll enjoy an outing on the Snake River where you most probably will spot the majestic bald eagles.
There’s wonderful wildlife to watch out for as you head south to one of America’s last preserves of wild solitude through the Grand Teton National Park, a magnificent summer and winter playground with saw-toothed, 13,500 feet high ridges crested with snow most of the year, these towering granite peaks provide endless opportunities for climbers, hikers and skiers. This is pure ‘Cowboy Country’ and in the marvellous mountain valley’s and amidst the soaring mountain ranges, are quaint towns such as Teton Village, Wilson, Thayne and Smoot, the romantic Wild West, where the hat-brandishing cowboy, which is the state insignia that still preserves the wonderful image, are just some of the places to stay in good quality and stylish bed and breakfast in Wyoming State.
