Travel Haiku - Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming)



a burst of nature's grace
the model swirls to a
cloud of geyser's spray

Mammoth Hot Spring
her smile cascading
over our heart

Mammoth Hot Spring
hot smile cascading
over the water terraces

nothing can cool us down
Yellowstone National Park
we ran from pool to pool

Yellow Stone Park mud pot
he moos like a
water buffalo

Spraying geyser
the model in lace swirls
to nature's grace


Founded in 1872, Yellowstone National Park was the nation's first (although Yosemite continues to fight for this title) —and remains one of the nation's best—national parks. Situated on a rare hot spot on the earth's surface, the park boasts over 10,000 hydrothermal features, including brightly colored hot springs, bubbling mudpots, and more than 300 geysers, making up two-thirds of all the geysers found on earth. To see the beautiful cascading terraces of Mammoth Hot Springs, enter the park from the North Entrance Road in Montana, drive along the Gardner River, and make your way up the steep walls of the canyon.
