Journey to the Great Outdoors: Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park is a one of the best natural getaways that America has to offer. Waking up in the morning and walking out to the scenes of majestic wildlife and tall trees is enough to ease the mind and nurture the soul. The clean air and gorgeous land of America’s first National Park makes Yellowstone a perfect destination for a holiday.

If you’re coming from England (as I was), I highly recommend booking with Stansted parking. Booking in advance means you get to save money on expensive taxis and enjoy a hassle free Heathrow parking experience.

Visitors to Yellowstone National Park can experience a unique mixture of breathtaking scenery and a world of wildlife. Located in southeastern Montana this park is a short 40 minute drive from Bozeman and expands into Wyoming and Idaho. It boasts some of the most pristine land in the United States and is one of the few geothermal hotspots in the entire world.

For each season the park offers plenty of outdoor adventure for leisurely guests and serious sportsmen. Traveling through the park in the winter on snowmobiles or snow coaches is an experience not to be forgotten. The mixture of steam, snow and hot apple cider is a great winter memory to share with family and friends. Stop along the way to view the famous geysers and hot spots. Park staff is highly informed about the various attractions inside the park. I recommend you ask a park ranger for the best time of the day to view the spectacular eruption of the active geysers located throughout the park. The magnificent flora and fauna of this park includes a wide range of species for those who are interested in getting acquainted with the land. Spot animals such as bison, elk, bears and deer that populate the lush forest. When visiting Yellowstone have a local favorite and try the bison burger.

One of the most popular attractions of Yellowstone National Park is none other than Old Faithful. This enormous geyser erupts super-heated water into the air, sometimes over 50 meters high (that’s 164 feet!). I highly recommend you take a moment to watch Old Faithful erupt and then continue down the boardwalk and explore the Upper Geyser Basin. Visit this part of the park to see many other spectacular geysers such as Beehive, Castle, and Riverside. Then journey back and watch Old Faithful erupt once more, and get an idea of why it was named so in the first place. It is because this geyser is one of the most predictable and erupts every hour to hour and a half.

The stunning, natural beauty of Yellowstone!

One of the best places to see a wide range of wildlife in Yellowstone is Hayden Valley. Here at this central valley you will find herds of bison and elk. Watch out, you may even come across a grizzly bear! This valley is also home to a number of bird species such as ducks, Canadian geese and pelicans floating in the ponds which paints a beautiful background. This is a great place to take out the camera and capture some of the best scenic views. Other natural attractions include the Lower Falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. These spectacular falls reach over 90 meters high and the sight from the top is one that can never be forgotten. And upon the return home, you can rest at ease knowing you booked in advance with Parking Dublin Airport.

But wherever you plan on parking, be sure to pack your hiking boots when you journey to the great outdoors and visit Yellowstone National Park in Montana!
