Within the Rocky Mountains of the USA there are many fabulous National Parks. These include the World’s first ever National Park, Yellowstone as well as Grand Teton and Rocky Mountain National Parks. All are super places to visit for the fantastic scenery as well as the wildlife (birds, bison and bears included!). In Yellowstone there is also the geothermal activity including Old Faithful and many other geysers. Added to the birds and mammals theme are lots of beautifully colourful wild flowers many of which could be regarded as ‘Alpine’. The talk is illustrated by Mike’s own photography and delivered in his usual light but informative style.
