I was really excited to experience Yellowstone National Park , which is said to be the world's first national park. It really didn’t disappoint with amazing views of the mountains, forests, and lakes. This was my first time seeing bison up close, maybe a little too close when I walked within the 250ft advised by the park. The bison gave me the, “come any closer” look and there will be trouble. So, I decided to retreat back to my truck. Neo didn’t know what to make of the large animals. He stared quietly from the truck not even hinting that he wanted to get out for a closer look.
I spent two days exploring the volcanic activity rising up into the colorful hot springs, mudpots, and geysers. I ended day two with a few challenging hikes, with one ending with a peaceful view of the sunset.
I also took a trek over to the Grand Teton National Park . More beautiful views of the majestic mountains, lakes, and wildlife. If you want to be immersed in nature these are two amazing parks to visit.
