With 23 counties and bordered by six states, Wyoming is sure to bring some fun to the table for everyone. Visit the world's first national park: Yellowstone National Park (established in 1872). The park preserves abundant and diverse wildlife in one of the largest remaining intact wild ecosystems on Earth – protecting the gray wolf, grizzly bear, bald eagle and lynx, home to one of the world's largest concentrations of elk and the only place in the nation where bison have existed in the wild since primitive times. The park is the site of the largest volcanic eruptions in the world, the spectacular Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and the largest lake above 7,000 feet in North America.
Another favorite national park - nature enthusiast or not - is the Grand Teton National Park, located in northwest Wyoming just south of Yellowstone National Park and just north of the town of Jackson. The national park is a favorite among climbers, hikers and photographers. The Grand Teton rises to 13,770 feet above sea level and 12 other peaks reach above 12,000 feet elevation.
