Yellowstone National Park


Famous for its geothermal features – and for being parodied in Yogi Bear – this park is also home to a number of different varieties of animal. Grizzly bears roam the mountains and they’re a tad less friendly than Yogi, although the official website claims that your chances of being eaten by a bear are 1 in 2.1 million. Apparently, only 7 people have died at the paws of bears in the last 140, so you’re more likely to drown, or die of burns from the thermal pools. Provided you pick your way through unscathed, as the vast majority of visitors do, you can also see herds of bison, elks and wolves as well as the unique system of geysers and thermal pools that the park is so famous for.
