A 68-mile paved road past many of Yellowstone National Park’s best geysers and other geothermal features. Yellowstone National Park is the oldest national park in the world and perhaps the best known as well. Every year, literally millions of people come to see the park’s famous geysers and geothermal features and its plentiful wildlife and other spectacular scenery. The 2.2-million-acre park occupies the northwest corner of Wyoming and spills over into Montana and Idaho. Only Death Valley National Park is larger in the lower forty-eight states.
