Yellowstone National Park was established all the way back in 1872, making it the country’s first ever. In fact, it has been recorded as the first ever national park in the world. The vast area is a hotspot for volcanic activity, with its hot springs and geysers forging the most famous features of the park. Yellowstone is part of the Rocky Mountains, with almost all of the park carpeted in pine forest. The mixed mountains are perfect for various climbs.
