Yellowstone National Park
Past happeningsYellowstone National Park is a region of multiple terrains. After the catastrophic eruption in the 21st century, the landscape has changed drastically due to several centuries of the molten lava flow and millions of cubic feet of ash landing in the surrounding area. After the initial damages, Yellowstone National Park was uninhabitable for several more centuries. It wasn't till almost the turn of a new millennium that scientist discovered the recuperating lands. Everything began to grow at once with 20ft trees springing up seemingly overnight. The new plant growth attracted numerous amounts of animals, which also attracted Trophy Hunters. Yellowstone National Park has since been closed off to the public and remains only for scientific study and observation.
CurrentYellowstone is considered a highly dangerous area to travel. The near-constant changing of scenery, the government scientists patrolling the area, and the secret pockets of volcanic fumes make the region inhospitable to human life. Over 50% of the people who trespass in the area have gone missing and of that 50%, only about 1/3 of the bodies are ever found.
Fauna & Flora
AnimalsAnimal life is vast, diverse, and great in numbers. Because of the anti-hunting and closure to the public, animal species have been able to repopulate with no human interference. There are over 200 species of animals, including previous species that were not native to first Yellowstone National Park before the eruption. Such species include wolverines, tigers, elephants, antelope and many more. Nonnative species have shown unique adaptations to Yellowstone's habit unseen anywhere else in the world.
PlantMuch like with the animals of Yellowstone, the plant life is diverse and contains several previously nonnative species. It is currently unknown how many species of plants exist within Yellowstone as the discovery of new species happens almost every week. The continuous study of the region is revealing even more abnormal behavior of both plant and animal life. For example; known tropical plants have acclimated to Yellowstone's cold and dry temperatures by only growing during a rainy season.
MythsBecause of its closure to the public, there are several myths and rumors surrounding the Yellowstone National Park, especially concerning the animal and plant life. The Yellowstone Yeti is by far the most popular and has been "spotted" by several trespassers. The Yeti or the government is blamed for several disappearances.
Yellowstone National Park exports no resources and is closed to the public and general population. The Yellowstone Volcano is being studied and measure have been taken in order to prevent another eruption from it.
