The Presidents & Yellowstone

June 6th, 2019|

Yellowstone Entrance Sign I was recently asked about which Presidents had visited Yellowstone National Park.  Since I did not have the answer, I set out on a search to find out.  This is what I was able to discover about our Presidents and their connections to Yellowstone.  The best source I found was Yellowstone Historian Lee Whittlesey.

Grant signed the bill which designated Yellowstone as America’s First National Park.  He never visited the park but often said that creating a National Park was the “best idea America ever had.”  Therefore, he will forever be associated in our minds with Yellowstone.  Without his signature on that bill one can only wonder what Yellowstone would be like today had it not been protected by the government.

Crystal Falls courtesy of Jim Peaco/Yellowstone National Park Crystal Falls is located between the upper and lower falls and can be seen from the South Rim Trail just a little east of the Uncle Tom’s area.  Crystal Falls was created by the outfall of Cascade Creek into the canyon.  I, personally, have never seen Crystal Falls but you can be sure that on my next visit to the [...]
