Categories: Travel reports, North America, USA, Idaho

Our goal today was Yellowstone National Park. We had a 6-hour and nearly 600-kilometer drive through the states of Utah, Idaho and Wyoming.

Idaho

The route between Salt Lake City and Yellowstone National Park

The waterfalls in Idaho Falls

On the route between Salt Lake City and Yellowstone Park is the small town of Idaho Falls. Here you can see the waterfalls of the same name, Idaho Falls, and right behind it, the Idaho Falls Idaho Temple,which is the 8th Mormon Temple. We took some photos here and then sat right back in the car, because there was still a long way to go.

Die Yellowstone Bear World

After another 30 km on the US 20 we noticed a advertising sign of Yellowstone Bear World. We didn’t think long, turned quickly and looked at what there is to see. Bear World is a kind of “Drive-thru Wildlife Park”, i.e. you stay in your car and drive through the park to observe the animals. Most bears have rotted, slept or eaten…

On the premises there is also a small petting zoo where you can get close to deer, goats, pigs, ducks and geese. We found the thick piglet and the deer particularly sweet. The park also offers that you can feed baby bears with the bottle. We were only too happy to do that, but unfortunately it was no longer for today. What a pity!
