Yellowstone’s magnificent Grand Loop Drive traverses the heart of one of the world’s great wilderness preserves. For 142 miles, the traveler not only experiences forests, meadows and mountains but the Earth's largest concentration of geysers, one of North America's greatest wildlife spectacles, a petrified forest, the continent's largest high elevation lake and a canyon carved by the Yellowstone River so colorful that it left 19th century explorers and artists speechless. Written by a former Yellowstone interpretive ranger, and illustrated with 40 wilderness images, Yellowstone's Grand Loop Drive will allow you to experience a vicarious journey through one of America's truly great national parks. If you are contemplating a visit to Yellowstone, bring this eBook along (on your iPad or print it out) and use it as your interpretive guide. Mile markers throughout show places to stop with descriptions of the park’s natural and human history and also provide information on short and long hiking trails found along the way. When you make the effort to understand the geology, plant and animal ecology and the human story behind this magnificent wilderness, it's easy to conclude that the old adage "truth is stranger than fiction" must have been thought up with Yellowstone National Park in mind!
