'Tis the season for traveling to our national parks, especially Yellowstone, a world-famous destination. Before you drive off for a summer visit to our nation's first national park, tune in to The Write Question to find out about more about Yellowstone's geology, plants, and animals.
This week's program features Marc S. Hendrix, author of Geology Underfoot in Yellowstone Country, and KC Glastetter and Jeremie Hollman, co-authors of Yellowstone National Park: An ABC Adventure, a book for young readers.
No matter what you're interested in seeing - bison, petrified trees, geysers, the Fishing Bridge, a grizzly bear or wolf, or the remnants of an ancient ocean - you'll find it all in this pair of books.

KC Glastetter has been an elementary school teacher for over twenty years and a photographer for five. She currentlyl teaches third grade in Kalispell, Montana. KC and her family spend countless hours each year riding their tandem bicycle, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing throughout the magnificent northwest. KC feels fortunate just to be outside in such incredible surrounding, and if she's lucky enough to capture a photograph, she is even richer for the experience.
