Our Journey to the Two Wyoming National Parks
Entering from the north through the iconic Roosevelt Arch and see an abundance of incredible wildlife, i.e., bison, elk, and various birds. Next, we see Yellowstone Canyon, which offers scenic waterfall views and vistas. Yellowstone’s geothermal features, such as Mammoth Hot Springs, Norris Geyser Basin, and Old Faithful, set it apart from all others. This incredibly unique landscape should be on everyone’s travel bucket list. The other half of the Wyoming Parks duo is just to the south. The Grand Tetons rise steeply out of the valley floor and offer stunning views of the mountains. There are also beautiful alpine lakes and great hiking. John becomes a “Junior Ranger,” and we find ourselves in yet another “pickle”, as Google maps and a poor choice lead us on a very bumpy adventure through the mountains.
So be sure not to miss either of these Wyoming National Parks as you plan your adventures around the United States. Yellowstone and Grand Teton are both amazing. We feel so blessed to have been able to see all 50 states and all 51 of the parks in the lower 48.
