The principal road into the park runs from Mammoth Hot Spring to Norris Geyser Basin, then loops by Canon Hotel, Yellowstone Lake, the Upper and Lower Geyser Basins, and Gibbon Canon & Falls, before returning to Norris Geyser Basin. Mountains, hills, rivers, brooks and creeks are all named.<br><br> Yellowstone became the first national park on March 1, 1872 when President Ulysses S. Grant signed the Yellowstone National Park Protection Act into law. The park spans three states: Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.<br><br> Printed by Poole Brothers, Chicago.
