Yellowstone's unique attractions!
yellowstone's tourist attractions yellowstone national park is the most extraordinary national park out there! First established in 1872, president Ulysses S Grant also set Yellowstone as a public park for all to enjoy and appreciate nature. through out the 2 centuries since it was funded, the park virtually remained unchanged within the 2.2 million acres of wild life. If your ever going to visit yellowstone national park, then you better visit the top 10. attractions of Yellowstone. Starting from the last, West Thumb Geyser Basin, number 9. is Lower Geyser Basin/Fountain Paint Pots, number 8. is the Tower Fall, number 7. is the Lamar Valley, number 6. is the Norris Geyser Basin, number 5. is the Yellowstone Lake, number 4. is the well known and certainly the most colourful Mammoth Hot Springs, number 3. is the well known hayden valley, number 2. on the list is the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and last but not least number 1. attraction is the Old faithful geyser and upper geyser basin.
Example? pictures? Scientists say that the yellow is caused by
organism living in the water while the blue is reflected
off by the sky! Often times visitors list picnicking as their favorite "to do" thing when visiting the park. while enjoying an delicious meal, surrounded by wildlife wherever you look. Many species of wildlife live on Yellowstone. In millions of years creatures such as the Bison has evolved to stay alive on Yellowstone, due to its harsh nature. The bison or often called buffalo have such a thick coat that they can stand temperature down to -60 Fahrenheit, that’s -51 Celsius Plus to survive in Yellowstone snow can get tall fairly quickly. So to able to survive and feed bisons are able to swing their head deep in the snow to remove the snow covering the grass and feed. SPECIES OF YELLOWSTONE
CLIMATE LANDFORMS VEGETATION http://www.yellowstoneparknet.com/nature_wildlife/
Yellowstone has one of the most concentrated number of animals
in south america. Home to seven of the Native American mammals as well.
Example elk, moose, mule deer, big horn sheep. The animals that live there are
allowed to roam freely in the park, with miminum human contact. Leaving Yellowstone
a place to be for wild animals to remain wild.
Due to Yellowstone's location and landforms, the weather remains unpredicable. A nice hot summer day could suddenly get a foot of snow the next day. Weather also can change drastically because of the location in Yellowstone. From high elevations to low elevations. Climate is the number 1 concern for visitors. we advise visitors to bring layers of clothes, with rain gear all year round. Spring Spring in Yellowstone means snow. Unlike the rest of America whos
experiencing warmth, Yellowstone remains snowing in most parts.
Average day time temperature is from 5 to 15 celcius. Average night time is from anywhere from single digits to around the freezing mark. Winter Winter would be a hectic time to enjoy Yellowstone
if you are planning to go there. By far winter is the worst possible
time to visit if you are sensible to extreme cold and snow. usually the
avrage snow fall is 150inches (380cm) while some ranging 5-10 metres
at higher elevations. But if you are prepared, some could pull it off.
Remmember to always bring extra clothes even if you think you don't need
them!
Another clasic example of how mammals survive in such weathers are the Yellowstone foxes. Since they don't hibernate how do they find food in this deep snow you ask? Well watch and find out! Summer summer is YellowStone is truly a paradise with average temperatures
between the 70-80f. But don't get any misconceptions, rain gear is a must
with all the thunderstorms in the afternoon. June is usually more rainier than
July and august thugh.
Autumn Fall is a nice pleasant season in Yellowstone
as the temperature keeps droping snowstorms
and precipitations are more lickley to appear.
Temperatures are around 40-50 f. Many scientists believe that due to the hot spots from Yellowstone
made the fundation landforms of Yellowstone. Such as the plateau which
receive large amounts of snow at winter time. In Yellowstone the landforms
affect which specie lives where and how. Example the floras to get the conditions
it needs to thrive depends on where in Yellowstone because of each flora's needs.
http://www.nps.gov/archive/yell/pphtml/naturalfeatures.html The canyons and subalpine regions in yellowstone, at 7000-10000 feet, are known for conifer forests and open meadows of wildflowers at a high elevation, the wildflowers are abundant and healthy. The park has many types of ecosystems, but the subalpine forest is dominant and is still thriving today. Next to lodgepole pine trees are the most commonly found trees in the park. The park is home to more than 1 350 species of vascular plants, of which 218 are non-native
