Snowfall is highly variable. While the average is 150 inches per year, it is not uncommon for higher elevations to get twice that amount. Daytime temperatures range from the 30s to the 60s (0 to 20C) with overnight lows in the teens to single digits (-5 to -20C).

Snow is common in the Spring and Fall with regular accumulations of 12" in a 24 hour period.

There is always something to do, and sights to see. Yellowstone is a great place to bring your family and is educational at the same time as being interesting. The most famous landform at Yellowstone is Old Faithful a geyser that was formed millions of years ago
It erupts warm air and water every 90 minutes making it the most predictable geyser
Other landforms include lakes,rivers, waterfalls and mountains.cliffs and plateaus
There's lots of freshwater and it's very rocky Landforms Have any questions? What is the Region? How did Yellowstone form? What is the best time to visit? HISTORY The history of Yellowstone goes back to
11,000 years ago, when Native Americans used the region to hunt, live and as a major transportation route. About 200 years ago the first people from Europe explored the park. An explorer named David Thompson (geographer and explorer) described in his notes that the place looked like "Yellow Stones".In 1872, Yellowstone was established as the first national park in the world. Yellowstone is a way for people to preserve and protect the best of what they had for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations. MODERN TECHNOLOGY AND HUMAN MODIFICATION The Geysers at Yellowstone formed because Yellowstone is a hot spot(Yellowstone is actually a huge volcano) and molten rock heats up water and air shoots up. Perceptual region: Lots of trees and forests; it is nature friendly
formal-trees, geysers and lakes
Formal- not a very populous place and almost no buildings. It's best to go during the fall when there are fair conditons and the park is less crowded. However, it depends on your likes and interests to determine the best time to go. Yellowstone park currently recycles the plastic bottles left at the park to make synthetic turf
Yellowstone also recently began monitoring the air pollution caused by snowmobiles used as a form of transportation and recreation in an effort to conserve the national park Vegetation Types of Trees There are more than 1500 plant species. Yellowstone is mainly known for conifer forests and meadows of wildflowers. Coniferous Trees
