An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at West Thumb Geyser Basin and Midway Geyser Basin. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Grand Loop Road, don't miss a visit to The 45th Parallel, take in the dramatic natural features at Biscuit Basin, and take in the natural beauty of Castle Geyser.

To find photos, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Yellowstone National Park online day trip planner.

Fresno to Yellowstone National Park is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train, bus, and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Fresno to Yellowstone National Park. Traveling from Fresno in August, expect Yellowstone National Park to be cooler, temps between °F and °F. On the 26th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive to Thermopolis.
