THE YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
THE LAND OF WONDERS
HE Yellowstone National Park is the largest and most widely celebrated of our national parks. It is a wooded wilderness of thirty-three hundred square miles. It contains more geysers than are found in the rest of the world together. It has innumerable boiling springs whose steam mingles with the clouds.
It has many rushing rivers and large lakes. It has waterfalls of great height and large volume. It has fishing waters unexcelled.
It has canyons of sublimity, one of which presents a spectacle of broken color unequaled. It has areas of petrified forests with trunks standing. It has innumerable wild animals which have ceased unduly to fear man; in fact, it is unique as a bird and animal sanctuary.
It has great hotels and many public camps. It has two hundred miles of excellent roads.
In short, it is not only the wonderland that common report describes; it is also the fitting playground and pleasure resort of a great people; it is also the ideal summer school of nature study.
