The four types of thermal features are geysers, hot springs, mud pots, and fumaroles. Yellowstone Lake has It is the largest high elevation lake in North America.
Yellowstone is home to the largest concentration of mammals in the lower 48 states 67 species. Grizzly sow and cubs seen near Yellowstone Lake in late May.

Park Service hunters carried out these orders, and by they had killed wolves. Gradually, wolves were virtually eliminated from Yellowstone.
With the passing of the Endangered Species Act in , the wolf was one of the first mammal species listed. Since the coyote is not able to bring down large animals, this lack of an apex predator resulted in a marked increase in lame and sick megafauna.
By the s, the Federal government had reversed its views on wolves. In a controversial decision by the U. Fish and Wildlife Service which oversees threatened and endangered species , northwestern wolves imported from Canada were reintroduced into the park.
Reintroduction efforts have been successful, with populations remaining relatively stable. A survey conducted in reported that there were 13 wolf packs, totaling individuals in Yellowstone and in the entire ecosystem.
These park figures were lower than those reported in , but may be attributable to wolf migration to other nearby areas as suggested by the substantial increase in the Montana population during that interval.
Fish and Wildlife Service removed the Northern Rocky Mountain wolf population from the endangered species list. Black bears are common in the park and were a park symbol due to visitor interaction with the bears starting in Feeding and close contact with bears has not been permitted since the s to reduce their desire for human foods.
As of [update] , an estimated grizzly bears were living in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem,  with about grizzlies living wholly or partially within Yellowstone National Park.
The grizzly bear was taken off the endangered species list in Hunters who legally hunt animals outside park boundaries may transport the carcass through the park with a permit.
Population figures for elk are in excess of 30,—the largest population of any large mammal species in Yellowstone. The southern herd migrates southward, and the majority of these elk winter on the National Elk Refuge , immediately southeast of Grand Teton National Park.
The southern herd migration is the largest mammalian migration remaining in the U. In the tracks of one female lynx and her cub were spotted and followed for over 2 miles 3.
Fecal material and other evidence obtained were tested and confirmed to be those of a lynx. No visual confirmation was made, however.
Lynx have not been seen in Yellowstone since , though DNA taken from hair samples obtained in confirmed that lynx were at least transient to the park.
The mountain lion has an estimated population of only 25 individuals parkwide. Eighteen species of fish live in Yellowstone, including the core range of the Yellowstone cutthroat trout —a fish highly sought by anglers.
Government stocking operations in , it was never officially introduced into the Yellowstone River drainage. Since , all native sport fish species caught in Yellowstone waterways are subject to a catch and release law.
Yellowstone is also home to seven species of reptiles , including the painted turtle , rubber boa , and prairie rattlesnake , bullsnake , sagebrush lizard , valley garter snake and wandering garter snake and four species of amphibians , including the boreal chorus frog , tiger salamander , western toad and columbia spotted frog.
Three hundred eleven species of birds have been reported, almost half of which nest in Yellowstone. Extremely rare sightings of whooping cranes have been recorded, however only three examples of this species are known to live in the Rocky Mountains, out of known worldwide.
As wildfire is a natural part of most ecosystems, plants that are indigenous to Yellowstone have adapted in a variety of ways.
Douglas-fir have a thick bark which protects the inner section of the tree from most fires. Lodgepole Pines —the most common tree species in the park—generally have cones that are only opened by the heat of fire.
Their seeds are held in place by a tough resin, and fire assists in melting the resin, allowing the seeds to disperse. Fire clears out dead and downed wood, providing fewer obstacles for lodgepole pines to flourish.
Subalpine Fir , Engelmann Spruce , Whitebark Pine , and other species tend to grow in colder and moister areas, where fire is less likely to occur.
Aspen trees sprout new growth from their roots, and even if a severe fire kills the tree above ground, the roots often survive unharmed because they are insulated from the heat by soil.
About thirty-five natural forest fires are ignited each year by lightning , while another six to ten are started by people—in most cases by accident.
Yellowstone National Park has three fire lookout towers , each staffed by trained fire fighters. The easiest one to reach is atop Mount Washburn, which has interpretive exhibits and an observation deck open to the public.
Fires burn with the greatest intensity in the late afternoon and evening. Current policy is to suppress all human caused fires and to evaluate natural fires, examining the benefit or detriment they may pose on the ecosystem.
If a fire is considered to be an immediate threat to people and structures, or will burn out of control, then fire suppression is performed.
In an effort to minimize the chances of out of control fires and threats to people and structures, park employees do more than just monitor the potential for fire.
Controlled burns are prescribed fires which are deliberately started to remove dead timber under conditions which allow fire fighters an opportunity to carefully control where and how much wood is consumed.
Natural fires are sometimes considered prescribed fires if they are left to burn. In Yellowstone, unlike some other parks, there have been very few fires deliberately started by employees as prescribed burns.
However, over the last 30 years, over natural fires have been allowed to burn naturally. In addition, fire fighters remove dead and down wood and other hazards from areas where they will be a potential fire threat to lives and property, reducing the chances of fire danger in these areas.
The common notion in early United States land management policies was that all forest fires were bad. Fire was seen as a purely destructive force and there was little understanding that it was an integral part of the ecosystem.
Consequently, until the s, when a better understanding of wildfire was developed, all fires were suppressed. This led to an increase in dead and dying forests, which would later provide the fuel load for fires that would be much harder, and in some cases, impossible to control.
Fire Management Plans were implemented, detailing that natural fires should be allowed to burn if they posed no immediate threat to lives and property.
Grasses and plants which grew well in the early summer from the abundant spring moisture produced plenty of grass, which soon turned to dry tinder.
The National Park Service began firefighting efforts to keep the fires under control, but the extreme drought made suppression difficult. By the end of the month, the fires were out of control.
A total of 25, firefighters and U. By the time winter brought snow that helped extinguish the last flames, the fires had destroyed 67 structures and caused several million dollars in damage.
Contrary to media reports and speculation at the time, the fires killed very few park animals—surveys indicated that only about elk of an estimated 40,—50, , 36 deer, 12 moose, 6 black bears, and 9 bison had perished.
Changes in fire management policies were implemented by land management agencies throughout the United States, based on knowledge gained from the fires and the evaluation of scientists and experts from various fields.
By , Yellowstone had adopted a new fire management plan which observed stricter guidelines for the management of natural fires.
Yellowstone climate is greatly influenced by altitude, with lower elevations generally found to be warmer year-round. Summer afternoons are frequently accompanied by thunderstorms.
The precipitation of Yellowstone is greatly influenced by the moisture channel formed by the Snake River Plain to the west that was, in turn, formed by Yellowstone itself.
Tornadoes in Yellowstone are rare; however, on July 21, , the most powerful tornado recorded in Wyoming touched down in the Teton Wilderness of Bridger-Teton National Forest and hit Yellowstone National Park.
The tornado left a path of destruction 1 to 2 miles 1. The climate at Yellowstone Lake is classified as subarctic Dfc , according to Köppen-Geiger climate classification , while at the park headquarters the classification is humid continental Dfb.
Yellowstone ranks among the most popular national parks in the United States. Since the mids, at least 2 million tourists have visited the park almost every year.
Concessionaires manage nine hotels and lodges, with a total of 2, hotel rooms and cabins available. They also oversee gas stations, stores and most of the campgrounds.
Another employees work either permanently or seasonally for the National Park Service. Park service roads lead to major features; however, road reconstruction has produced temporary road closures.
Yellowstone is in the midst of a long term road reconstruction effort, which is hampered by a short repair season. In the winter, all roads aside from the one which enters from Gardiner, Montana , and extends to Cooke City, Montana , are closed to wheeled vehicles.
In the winter, concessionaires operate guided snowmobile and snow coach tours, though their numbers and access are based on quotas established by the National Park Service.
Traffic jams created by road construction or by people observing wildlife can result in long delays. The National Park Service maintains 9 visitor centers and museums and is responsible for maintenance of historical structures and many of the other 2, buildings.
These structures include National Historical Landmarks such as the Old Faithful Inn built from to and the entire Fort Yellowstone — Mammoth Hot Springs Historic District.
An historical and educational tour is available at Fort Yellowstone which details the history of the National Park Service and the development of the park.
Campfire programs, guided walks and other interpretive presentations are available at numerous locations in the summer, and on a limited basis during other seasons.
Camping is available at a dozen campgrounds with more than 2, campsites. Backcountry campsites are accessible only by foot or by horseback and require a permit.
Visitors with pets are required to keep them on a leash at all times and are limited to areas near roadways and in "frontcountry" zones such as drive in campgrounds.
The National Park Service maintains a year-round clinic at Mammoth Hot Springs and provides emergency services throughout the year.
Hunting is not permitted, though it is allowed in the surrounding national forests during open season. Fishing is a popular activity, and a Yellowstone Park fishing license is required to fish in park waters.
Yellowstone Lake has a marina, and the lake is the most popular boating destination. In the early history of the park, visitors were allowed, and sometimes even encouraged, to feed the bears.
Visitors welcomed the chance to get their pictures taken with the bears, who had learned to beg for food. This led to numerous injuries to humans each year.
In , park officials changed their policy and started a vigorous program to educate the public on the dangers of close contact with bears, and to try to eliminate opportunities for bears to find food in campgrounds and trash collection areas.
Although it has become more difficult to observe bears in recent years, the number of human injuries and deaths has taken a significant drop and visitors are in less danger.
Other protected lands in the region include Caribou-Targhee , Gallatin , Custer , Shoshone and Bridger-Teton National Forests. The National Park Service's John D.
Memorial Parkway is to the south and leads to Grand Teton National Park. The famed Beartooth Highway provides access from the northeast and has spectacular high altitude scenery.
Nearby communities include West Yellowstone, Montana ; Cody, Wyoming ; Red Lodge, Montana ; Ashton, Idaho ; and Gardiner, Montana. The closest air transport is available by way of Bozeman, Montana ; Billings, Montana ; Jackson ; Cody, Wyoming , or Idaho Falls, Idaho.
The entire park is within the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming , making it the only federal court district that includes portions of more than one state Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.
Law professor Brian C. Kalt has argued that it may be impossible to impanel a jury in compliance with the Vicinage Clause of the Sixth Amendment for a crime committed solely in the unpopulated Idaho portion of the park and that it would be difficult to do so for a crime committed solely in the lightly populated Montana portion.
