Founded in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is the first national park and original park in the United States. The park is located in northwestern Wyoming. Because it is in a huge volcanic basin, Yellowstone Park has 10,000 hot springs, including 250 geysers. The number of hot springs is the highest in the world. The park has five entrances, divided into five zones: Mammoth Hot Springs area in the northwest is dominated by limestone steps, so it is also called the hot steps area; the northeast is the Roosevelt area, which still retains the old western landscape; the middle is a canyon area for viewing The Yellowstone Grand Canyon and waterfalls; the southeast is the Yellowstone Lake area, mainly with lakes and mountains; the west and southwest are geyser areas, full of geysers, hot springs, steam, hot water pools, mud and fumaroles. Precautions Hot spring It is not allowed to swim in the hot spring. Visitors must watch the hot springs in a safe place. Some hot springs contain substances that may scratch the skin or cause infection. The water temperature of some hot springs exceeds the boiling temperature, and if it is rashly approached, it will cause serious damage to the skin. Wild animals are not allowed to approach or feed wild animals. Cannot take photos of wild animals. Do not approach wild animals. Keep a distance from wild animals in accordance with the requirements of the park. Even if you keep a certain distance, you can easily see the living conditions of wild animals, even more clearly than if they are too close. Don't get too close to wild animals, especially animals with cubs. Observe them in a safe area. The Bison looks docile and slow to move, but it is actually a dangerous animal. This animal weighs 900 kilograms, if it runs three times faster than a human. Coyotes will ask pedestrians for food on the road. Don't give food to the coyote kindly, but you are under attack. Bear: The best way to avoid the bear's attack is to be cautious and avoid getting too close to the bear. If you encounter a bear attack suddenly, you can use pepper spray, which is as effective as 90%. If you are injured by a bear, notify the park ranger immediately. Dead trees There are some dead trees in Yellowstone Park, which were left over from the fire in 1988. Some branches will fall and hit visitors, so be careful when walking on the road.
