pools.jpgA visit to Yellowstone National Park is a must when staying at the Rusty Parrot Lodge and Spa in Jackson, Wyoming. This legendary preserve was designated as the world’s very first national park in 1872. A team led by Lewis and Clark were some of the first western explores to see the region. Upon returning from their first voyage, a member of their team, John Colter, tried to get his written account of the park published. No one believed what the group had seen from the mythically scenic landscape to the abundant variety of wildlife.

Its 2.2 million acres are home to active geysers, over 100 waterfalls, thermal pools, calderas, countless species of flora and fauna, endangered wildlife, 4 major lakes and 10 major rivers and creeks.
