I've seen grizzly bears in Yellowstone National Park do just about everything. It wasn't until today that I've never seen one sleeping. Thanks to a new video share by a very recent visitor to the park, I can now put a check in that box, too.
It's funny what you can find when you're looking around the old internet. My family has visited Yellowstone's Grand Prismatic Spring many times over the years, but we never saw anything quite like this. A man shared video of the time when a "steam tornado" formed during his visit.
There's only been one EF4 tornado in Wyoming history and it happened in the summer of 1987. It was a rare monster high-altitude tornado that carved a path of damage from the Teton Wilderness through Yellowstone National Park.
If you believe the best things are the hardest to get, then there's a Wyoming guest ranch you need to see. It is required that you have mountain driving experience before you can even attempt the trip.
It's vital to do everything you can to stay at least 100 yards away from larger and more dangerous wildlife in Yellowstone. But, what do you do when you have a surprise up-close encounter? A veteran hiker in Yellowstone just had this happen and made lifesaving decisions that all of us can learn from.
