Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park was the first National Park, established in 1872, before Wyoming was a state.  President Roosevelt started the National Park system.  At the North Entrance of the park, there is a famous arch called the Roosevelt Arch.  The words “For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People” are engraved on the top of the arch.  The arch was completed in 1903.

What words would you put on the arch?

I went rock climbing with my brother, Owen.  I had a great time! We were able to climb high. We found a cave and also a set of antlers.



 Lower Falls, one out at least 45 named waterfalls and cascades, and hundreds more unnamed, even undiscovered waterfalls over 15 feet (4.6 m) high, plummets 308 feet in the Yellowstone river. It is probably the second most photographed spot in Yellowstone.

    We are going to Yellowstone National Park very soon. What was your favorite thing to see in the park? What animals did you see in the park?

    After hearing the original quote from President Roosevelt, I find his words to be so inspiring. Truly the National Parks are such an inspiration for everyone. I would put these words on the arch: May you enter here with the anticipation of joy in your heart for the beauty that awaits you!

    Dear Ethan,
    It would probably say, WELCOME TO ALL. How high were you able to climb? Was there anything special things on South, East or West point of yellow stone?
