The park is also the site of the jurisdictional legal paradox known as the 'Zone of Death' - which is based on an, as far as I know, entirely untested theory that you might just be able to get away with murder in the Idaho section of Yellowstone.I know there are a few entries on here for Yellowstone National Park deaths but if you want to feel better about never being able to visit this geologic and natural mecca, I'd recommend the book Death in Yellowstone by Lee Whittlesey. OMG, I am so terrified of bears. So many body parts missing. I nearly had nightmares about falling through thin crust into boiling hot springs and dissolving. Just parts of the people would eventually float back up. Gruesome...
I'm not suggesting that anyone gives it a go, mind - but for those of us who never get to visit, it's another tick in the 'ah well, maybe it's for the best' box.
