-Tell us more
Will you tell us a little about Yellowstone National Park?

Sure. It’s a large park about the size of Kagoshima prefecture. Full of rivers, forests and wild animals. It is also famous for geyser like Old Faithful.
What’s a geyser?
A geyser is a kind of hot springs that send water high up to the air.
Old faithful is the most famous geyser in the U.S. And it sends water to the sky many times each day.

Have you been to Yellowstone National Park?
I didn’t have a chance to go there. But I wanna go.
I went to Yellowstone National Park two times. It is amazing, wild and beautiful.
What is the best thing about the park?
You can always find new things.
Right. Because it’s huge.
Yeah. I try to see so many things in just a few days like Old faithful, the beautiful lake on top of the super volcano and other hot springs with many colors.
That sounds great.
