Art by Nature - Yellowstone National Park | Duende by Madam ZoZo

“Artist Point” and “Inspiration Point” are apt names for the astoundingly scenic vistas they overlook in Yellowstone National Park. However, these are merely two examples from the 899,116 hectares of natural beauty and creative inspiration to explore in the Park. Let’s take a tour around Yellowstone National Park and I’ll show you some of it’s most inspirational locations accessible by road and short walks.

For more natural beauty from Yellowstone, Art by Nature – Wyoming Wildflowers is a good place to start. I’ve also shared a comprehensive summer road trip guide and a packing list.
