Travel to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks – Episode 183

categories: USA Travel

The Amateur Traveler talks to Erik Smith (who was a guest on Travel to America’s National Parks – Amateur Traveler Episode 121) about Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. We talk about all the different geothermal highlights of the park including Old Faithful, other geysers, thermal pools, etc. You will learn some of the facts about the history of the park. We also talk about wildlife (bison, moose, wolves, elk, bears, etc), hiking, camping, floating down the Snake river, the grand canyon of the yellowstone, the grandeur of the Tetons (and the strange original of the name Teton). So listen in for information on Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park and please don’t be like many Yellowstone National Park visitors who watch Old Faithful geyser go off and think they have seen Yellowstone. We talk about the park lodge and other lodging options including camping. We also talk about some of the gateway towns in Montana where you may want to stay to visit Yellowstone.

Also check out http://www.geyserstudy.org , the official website of the Geyser Observation and Study Association, for more information than you’d ever believe existed about Yellowstone’s geysers.

Baby moose are called calves. The gender names are taken from the cow family of mammals. They are so ugly they are cute. I heard they have faces only a mother could love. Jennifer Brown, VA

You are correct. I looked it up. A baby moose is a calf.
