Yellowstone National park is magnetically beautiful place due to its volcanic history. Three major eruptions of the park have created three nested calderas. Lava flows, rising magma domes,
tectonic shifting, the area’s system of geysers, thermal pool and other hydrothermal wonders have all formed the magnificent landscape. There you can walk by broad walks along the gazer fields and, if you have enough time, you can see all 10 thousand geothermal wonders of the park.
But also there are quite a number of other natural beauties, apart from the gazers. Yellowstone is a home for 1870 types of plants and 60 types of mammals, such as links, wolves, grizzly and black bears, as well as different types of deers.
Even from the window of your car, you can see the herds of bison, an alive symbol of the Great Plains. Some of them come to the road and do not hesitate at all - such cute giants as if they’re posing for the camera.
An adult bison male can weigh about one tone and can consume 25 kilos of grass in one day, eating 11 hours a day. Having such a heavy body, bison is not awkward at all: it can run up to 60 km per hour, quickly spin around quickly, jump over high fences and also is good in swimming. Definitely , bison is worthy of being the symbol of America!
By the way, it is formally recognised: on May 9, 2016, President Obama signed the National Bison Legacy Act into law, officially making the American bison the national mammal of the United States.
