Tomorrow my 9th grade students are going to read a text about Yellowstone Park. It brought me back memories when together with my family we crossed the USA from east to west, (for one whole month ) - "the trip of my life"- as I usually say.
Yellowstone was the first American park created in 1872. It is the size of Belgium. There you will find “ stately mountains, bison-specked meadows, tumbling streams, a sky-blue lake and wildlife beyond counting” (Bill Bryson. A Short History of Nearly Everything) .
One of the attractions are the geysers - the most famous is Old Faithful , and the Mammoth Hot Springs.
