Yellowstone National Park, WYOMING

Whilst 96% of Yellowstone National Park is in the north west corner of Wyoming, the park crosses into a small part of Idaho and Montana.  Yellowstone National Park's 2 million acres are home to an incomparable combination of natural beauty, rugged wilderness, majestic peaks and abundant wildlife, as well as the world’s largest concentration of geysers and thermal features. The iconic spots—Old Faithful, Lower Falls and Yellowstone Lake—may be familiar from paintings and photographs, but seeing them in person is a humbling, enthralling experience that visitors can enjoy year-round.

Grand Teton National Park, WYOMING

While iconic locations like Mormon Row and the Moulton Barns may be the most photographed destinations in the park, Grand Teton's celestial peaks also provide the perfect setting for nature lovers, outdoor adventurers and road trippers who are looking to explore the park's incredible landscapes.

Wildlife abounds in the parks 244,000 acres and can often be seen while hiking, camping and traveling the Badlands Loop Scenic Byway.

Custer State Park, SOUTH DAKOTA

Few truly wild places remain in this country. Custer State Park is one of them.

Nearly 1,300 bison roam the prairies and hills of the park, which they share with pronghorn, big horn sheep, elk and curious burros.

Craters of the Moon National Monument, IDAHO

Craters of the Moon formed during eight major eruptive periods between 15,000 and 2000 years ago. Lava erupted from the Great Rift, a series of deep cracks that start near the visitor center and stretch 52 miles (84 km.) to the southeast. During this time the Craters of the Moon lava field grew to cover 618 square miles (1600 square km.). The smaller Wapi and Kings Bowl lava fields also formed along the Great Rift during the most recent eruptive period (approximately 2000 years ago).
