Summer is just about here. For those who are considering a road trip to Yellowstone National Park, USA Today has an article on the park along with a three-minute video.

Old Faithful. Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Wolves. Bears. Bison.
For a first-time visitor, Yellowstone National Park seems to simply have too much to see and appreciate. Just for starters, it’s home to the world’s greatest concentration of thermal features, from boiling rivers and bubbling mud pots to the geysers, headlined by Old Faithful. Never mind the free-roaming herds of bison, or the wolves, or the towering waterfall.
At more than 3,400 square miles, this national park is bigger than Delaware and Rhode Island combined, although with far fewer people and roads. Exploring every inch would take years. But that’s the beauty of this park: Every visit can be totally different. Maybe it’s geysers and the rivers this year, bison and bears the next. An entire trip could be built around an early-morning adventure to see wild wolf pups playing in the sun.
