    Description

    Yellowstone is a combination of natural beauty, rugged wilderness, majestic peaks, and abundant wildlife. Geysers, mud pots, fumaroles, and hot springs make this magma-filled pressure cooker of a park unlike any place else on Earth.
    Yellowstone National Park spans an area of over 3,450 square miles. It is so large that is covers three states, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. The majority of the national park is located in Wyoming.

    7 days is plenty of time to check out Yellowstone and the Tetons. If you are hikers, you can do the whirlwind driving tour of Yellowstone in 2 or 3 days and then hike the backcountry in the Tetons for the scenery and solitude.
