Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone is a place where the ordinary has been shoved aside in favor of the astounding. September and October is beautiful here, with fewer crowds, great fall color, and wildlife watching. 

It's so big, you can experience completely different parts of the park over 3 days. Visit Old Faithful and Norris one day, Canyons and wildlife the next, and perhaps Mammoth Hot Springs after that. For a shorter visit, we've selected the highlights to see in 1 day.
