History of people who were connected with the park starts before about 11 000 years ago when the Indians in the area of the park began with hunting and fishing. The first whites in the area of the park were members of the research expedition Lewis and Clark and that they arrived 1805th .

Full Yellowstone Park is rich in thermal phenomena. In addition, there are geysers and hot mud pools, jet sulfur vapor that emerges from the chimney fumarola and natural hot springs. All this activity comes from large bubbles molten rock that slowly mows below the earth’s thin crust and constantly threatens erupcion. A approximately 600 000 years, a series of strong eruptions hit this area and built around 2590 km Stenak mountains and led to huge amounts of ash deposition and spray a thin layer of volcanic dust over the greater part of North America. Bark, which has lost support urušila in the empty space by creating a huge crater that covers an area of 3 100 km.
Later eruption of ash smaller intensity and lion are almost completely filled the crater ending river Yellowstone National Park and creating a large lake. However, due ice occurred during the three major ice ages, and even more with hot water and steam that is softened and painted in yellow stone edge of the crater, the river is slowly carved today’s Grand Canyon and descends from the lake down a multitude of magnificent waterfalls.
Evidence of ancient super-volcano eruptions are most visible on the ridge Spesmen Ridge which is a petrified forest of trees. I now can recognize the plane tree, walnut, oak, cornel.
In the park there are many animal species: bison, semolina, brown bear, wolf, coyote, deer, moose, short and longhorned mouflon and puma. The relatively large number of major concern associated with bison rancher who fear that the buffalo could infect domestic cattle.

The buffalo rancher and fear of wolves who often attack domestic cattle and sheep. To 1994. in the park was not because wolves are an integral destroyed and killed more than 1926th year. However, the decision of the U.S. Office of fish and wild animals as wolves 1995th was returned to Yellowstone National Park and now in the higher parts of the park has about 300 individuals.
Wolves after returning to the park are not considered endangered, and their type of poaching is allowed, but as there is interference with protected species of wolves that have moved and come to the park from Canada, it is almost impossible to distinguish protected from unprotected wolves.
Having been in the past, the wolf was extinct in the park, the biggest title of bishop wearing coyote. As the coyote was unable to hunt large animals that are not his natural prey, and among these animals an increase hromih and sick animals, and is thus.
