I like to imagine this bear thinks it’s opening the office refrigerator. “Leftover dad, eh. Mmm, hey, anybody’s name on those screaming kids in the back?”
Yellowstone tiene un problema de bisontes... o más bien de turistas. Según el Servicio de Parques Nacionales de Estados Unidos, el número de incidentes en los que uno de estos grandes hervíboros ha atacado a seres humanos se ha disparado. La causa de este aumento no hay que buscarla en los bisontes, sino en los…
Lyell Glacier was Yosemite’s National Park’s largest glacier. In 1883, park officials took a photograph of the ice giant. This year, NASA’s climate team recreated that photo with the glacier in its current state. The comparison is stunning.
Taking selfies with wild animals is utterly moronic, and yet that fact isn’t dissuading Yellowstone tourists from trying to snap smiling vacation photos alongside bison. On Tuesday, a 43-year-old Mississippian woman attempting this misguided stunt was charged by the angry animal and tossed in the air before escaping.
A calf moves with a herd of bison in Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park.
It turns out that the video of black bears chasing tourists in Yellowstone National Park is less a case of a protective mother and her cubs and more a case of a frightened bear trying to get away from gawking tourists who trapped them.
Según los geólogos, el volcán que duerme bajo el parque natural de Yellowstone, en Estados Unidos, no corre riesgo de entrar en erupción en los próximos 100.000 años. Sin embargo, cada nuevo dato que averiguamos sobre Yellowstone confirma una cosa: es mucho más masivo de lo que creemos.
Geophysicists have discovered a second, even more massive magma reservoir feeding the Yellowstone supervolcano, providing researchers with the most comprehensive picture yet of the volcanic system beneath the park.
El parque natural de Yellowstone no está lleno de geíseres, fumarolas y actividad termal por nada. Bajo esta maravilla natural hay una caldera de magma sencillamente enorme. Básicamente, Yellowstone es un volcán muy grande y activo. ¿Qué pasaría si decidiera entrar en erupción? La respuesta corta: nada bueno.
Taken just a few days after the official start of spring, this photo of the Porcelain Basin Hot Springs (named after the milky white mineral deposit) almost looks like the national park is steaming off winter in favor of spring.
Decades ago, the Morning Glory pool at Yellowstone National Park was a gorgeous deep blue. But because tourists have thrown coins, rocks, and trash into it for years, the spring has now turned into a sickly yellowish green. Now, a new optics study is shedding light on the pool's unfortunate change of color.
Because every time there's a new viral Bigfoot video, we can't stop ourselves from watching it, skepticism be damned. This one, at least, contains some lovely views of Yellowstone National Park, where the geysers are majestic and the buffalo roam ... and maybe Sasquatch (keep your eyes on the trees) do, too.
The Fountain Paint Pots in Yellowstone National Park are named for the colorful muds produced by the oxidizing iron in the mud, the natural result of hot springs. In November 2014, a light dusting of snow both revealed the topography of the area and made the steam rising from the ground clear and eerie.
El parque nacional de Yellowstone, en Estados Unidos, está lleno de maravillas naturales. Entre las más visitadas están los estanques de aguas termales. Algunos de ellos presumen de unos espectaculares colores, pero no siempre fue así. Y lo que es peor, esos tonos se deben a la contaminación provocada por los turistas.
Montana's Yellowstone hosts America's largest herd of bison, and one of the only remaining wild populations left. But now some of their almost 5,000-strong herd is ready to be adopted out.
Rising 7,000 feet above the town of Jackson Hole in Wyoming, the Teton Mountain Range, while only about 40 miles long, is a dramatic sight. Standing out among the peaks is Grand Teton, towering at 13,770 feet. I set out with five friends in an attempt to free solo it.
Someone, somewhere, decided that Yellowstone was in a period of unusually high geologic activity and facing major road closures and evacuations, and therefore was in danger of imminent eruption. This is all so ridiculously untrue, I hesitate to even use the "debunkery" tag because it's hard to believe it needs…
If you're going to roundly ignore the ban on drones in America's national parks, then indeed you deserve to lose your toy in the murky, 160-degree depths of a hot spring. This past weekend, a tourist crashed a drone right into Yellowstone's iconic Grand Prismatic Spring.
In this week's Landscape Reads, we learn all about Yellowstone's "Zone of Death," the bitter rivalry of pallet companies (yes, pallet companies), the ultimate cause behind Alaska's Funny River fire, and more.
