Places to Visit
Yellowstone National Park is home to hundreds of different species. While you are visiting, keep an eye out for all the different types of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians. The park has a long history of Native Americans, expeditions, and more recently, tourists. Ulysses S. Grant signed The Act of Dedication in 1872 making Yellowstone a National Park. Yellowstone is also known for its supervolcano which erupted around 630,000 years ago.
The Grand Teton National park is located in northwestern Wyoming. The park is most famous for the Teton Range which is the most recent range to form about 8 million years ago. The Paleo Native Americans spent their summers in the Tetons 11,000 years ago. Back then, the climate was more artic than it is now. More recently, the Shoshone Native Americans established permanent settlements. The Shoshone River is a 100-mile river that runs into the Big Horn River in Wyoming.
