Sitting on top of what geologists call a "super volcano," the park—the nation's first, which was preserved by President Ulysses S. Grant in 1872—is one of only a few "hot spots" globally where superheated molten rock rises to the surface. Within the 2.2-million-acre park, you'll find more geysers than anywhere else, at least 300 of which are active, including the still-resolute Old Faithful. As in its sister park, Grand Teton, the wildlife seems to be everywhere, including standing in the road and compounding traffic woes. (Note: "Playing" with the bison and other large mammals is decidedly ill-advised.) Although Yellowstone's more-famous quadrants are crowded with gawkers, only ten percent of the almost three million annual visitors get off the road and into the pristine backcountry. The South entrance, the closest to Jackson, is 60 miles from town but can take as long as two hours to reach during summer season due to congestion (it's where all the geysers are accessible from); it's open from mid-May to early November.
