Yellowstone, the world’s first national park and one of the largest in the contiguous United States, is located at the headwaters of the Yellowstone River. Sprawled across volcanic plateaus, Yellowstone contains more than two million acres of steaming geysers, crystalline lakes, thundering waterfalls and panoramic vistas — 96% of the park is claimed by Wyoming, with small portions of the park lying in Montana and Idaho. Yellowstone is home to a remarkable diversity of mammals, birds and fishes. Every season at Yellowstone brings special wonders as each of the parks’ varied landscapes offers a range of exciting experiences. The park is home to seven species of conifer trees, more than 1,000 species of native vascular plants, 67 species of mammals (including grizzly bears, wolves, bison, moose and elks) and more than 320 bird species. Somesh Goyal’s exhibition, Yellowstone: The Artist’s Point, will be on display at Civil Services Officers’ Institute, Chanakyapuri till 21 April 2015.

The Roosevelt Arch on the Montana side of the Park was commissioned by President Roosevelt.

The 300 grizzly bears that inhabit the park are a star attraction for the visitors.

Yellowstone Falls have stirred many a painter’s heart.

The Liberty Cap in the Mammoth Spring Area was formed by mineral deposits over centuries. It is named after the peaked knit cap worn by French revolutionaries.

Mammoth Hot Springs are conspicuous because of their primal coluors, which change with every season.

Yellowstone is home to one of the largest herds of bison in USA.
