2. Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Only a state away from Glacier National Park is Yellowstone, a national park that sits on top of a Volcanic hotspot. Think hot springs and geysers galore! The best hot spring to snap a photo at? The Grand Prismatic Spring– it’s the largest hot spring in the U.S. Its orange, yellow and blue tones are perfect for an eye-catching IG photo.

3. Zion National Park, Utah
