White Pelicans Wildlife Review

Favorite thing: With a wing-span of up to 6 ft. I never expected to see Pelicans so far inland. They nest in the park and are quite common in Hayden Valley and Yellowstone Lake.

Other birds you may observe around water are Canada's Geese, Mallards and Trumpeter Swans.

thermophiles - Yellowstone National Park

thermophiles

Life at high temps

Favorite thing: There is so much to "take in" at Yellowstone much of it on a grandiose scale - the geysers, bison, lakes and grand canyon. Do take the time to observe the "little" things...you'll be surprised at what you'll find. An array of living creatures that create some of the most outstanding colors in the park. Hard to believe that living creatures can withstand such hot temps, water too hot for us to touch. But these creatures or "thermophiles" are adapted to hot envirnoments and thrive in hot springs, volcanoes, deserts and even power plants and hot water heaters.

Old Faithful Post Office - Yellowstone National Park

Old Faithful Post Office

Old Faithful Post Office

Favorite thing: The Old Faithful geyser area has its own post office. It's located next to the Snowlodge, and behind the Old Faithful Lodge. Very convenient for sending postcards to fellow VTers, friends or family. I even had to mail one to myself :-) just to get the Old Faithful post mark.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
