Our September Visit to Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park spans parts of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, and is the first of fifty-eight national parks here in the United States. We visited Yellowstone for a few days last September.

There are several waterfalls and cascades within Yellowstone.

There are all kinds of wildlife in Yellowstone, including elk, buffalo, moose, bears and wolves. We did not see any moose, bears or wolves, although we did visit the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. But, we did spot an elk in the forest and it was fun to watch the herds of buffalo. Always stay a safe distance from all wildlife, and if you hike in Yellowstone, carry bear spray and know how to use it.

Yellowstone is full of amazing sights! Geysers, mudpots, steam vents…

We discovered that visiting Yellowstone in September was just as busy as summertime. If you go at a busy time, be patient because driving through Yellowstone gets slow-going and the most popular attractions stay packed with tourists. It wasn’t too crazy, though. We stayed at Stage Coach Inn, in West Yellowstone, and found it to be a nice hotel.

♥ Thanks for re-visiting Yellowstone with me! Have you visited Yellowstone? What is your favorite national park? ♥

  1. We just read a quote from Puritan John (William? Oops, I can’t remember!) Prynne. In it he described the evils of the theater and the wonders of the natural world for entertainment. I think your post illustrates his argument perfectly.

    1. Sounds like an interesting quote! I do think nature makes for the best entertainment. I love listening to rain fall or waves crash, watching wildlife, and so forth.
