Yellow Stone Park - 33 States

Hello friends,

Hope you are all doing good. Finally I have visited one of the popular places in US - Yellow Stone National Park. This is real huge park which covers almost 4 states. This was also shown in a movie "2012". I along with a friend flew to Salt Lake City, Utah first. Salt lake city is not a great city, but the location it is situated is beautiful.

It is completely surrounded by mountains. We have also visited the Bonneville salt flats near salt lake city. This place is amazing, its just miles and miles area covered with salt on the ground. You know, this place is known for hosting the international speed racing at peak summers.

Next our destination was to Yellow Stone National Park. It was snowing heavily near the park but we could visit the required places in the mornings without any issue. We drove along the northwest side of the park and reached the north entrance. There we could watch some wild life on our way to mammoth hot springs. It was a good driving practise for my friend on different types of roads(snow, gravel etc).:)

This is another amazing place where there are several hot springs. Its interesting that the water would be boiling at high temparatures and we could see the fumes all over the mountain. Definitely a natural wonder.

Last but not the least, the total number of US states I have visitied increased to 33 with this trip.:)

Checkout some photographs from my trip below..
