8. Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho

Yellowstone National Park is one of the most stunning places in the country and it draws the attention of people all around the world! This tourist attraction is best known for its wildlife and plentiful hot springs.

However, this is not your usual “go for a stroll” type of park because if you don’t go prepared, things can get very dangerous, even deadly, in conformity with several experts.

Don’t get us wrong, we don’t say that there is something specific that can cause injury or even death, but there are many things spread in this park’s area that represent issues. As you might already know this place is situated on top of a supervolcano, so no wonder why sometimes visitors find hot springs or boiling geysers.

There are people who don’t respect the warning signs in the park and can end up very injured, burned, or even boiled to death, in some extreme cases.

There are also other situations where tourists get hurt, such as slipping on steep hiking trails, falling while they are climbing up a mountain, or even drowning in a water hole.

  1. I have been to several of these n so have my adult children with their young families. You FOLLOW the rules and you will be ok!!

  2. I myself haven’t been to any of those places but being from Cherokee NC with the Great Smoky Mountains neighboring our Reservation, you see people taking risks all the time. Of course everyone loves seeing the wildlife but when they want to crowd up around the elk, putting themselves and the elk in danger, is not smart at all. The same goes for bears who are even more dangerous and to some people they don’t care! Clingman’s Dome and the Chimneys are other great places to see but not without risks. Not that far of a hike but the high elevations, steep paths to the top and sometimes high winds are unseen hazards to remember.

      Pure sensationalism. I’ve been to several of these places and never felt in danger. Follow the posted rules and you’ll be fine.

  3. Been to Pike Peak and we took the Tram, it’ a long but has some fantastic views. We looked at the road when we enjoying the top and my son and I said NO Thanks on the road it’ dangerous.

  4. Yes, we foolishly hiked Great Sand Dunes National park with the wrong shoes and no water. It was very hot and pushed my asthmatic wife to the edge trying to make it to the top. Medrano Creek was actually flowing when it shouldn’t have. That was some help to cool our feet. We are older but should have been wiser. Never saw the quicksand that this article mentioned. Good thing!

    As a photographer I have been to 6 out of the 8 locations. As long as you obey the warning signs you will be okay, however some people just put themselves in harms way. In return it is the individuals fault. The warning signs are there for a reason.

  6. I totally agree. i have been to several of these also. Follow the rules, use common sense and you will be fine.
