USA - Yellowstone National Park (US-240604)

I received this official card from Utah, but it shows the Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. More precisely, is shows the Kepler Cascades that drops 50 feet over 3 steps as the Firehole River flows North, located aproximately 2 miles south of Old Faithful.

Yellowstone National Park, set aside as a national park on March 1, 1872, is located mostly in the U.S. state of Wyoming, though it also extends into Montana and Idaho. The park was the first of its kind, and is known for its wildlife and its many geothermal features, especially Old Faithful Geyser, one of the most popular areas in the park. It has many types of ecosystems, but the Boreal forest is dominant.
