There are also hot springs, boiling mud pots, and stinking fumaroles.

The park covers around 166 square miles and is attended by over 400,000 vistors each year. A good deal of the park has cool winters and warm summers due to it's elevation although at some of the higher altitudes the winters are quite harsh. The area has been very well preserved and the most of the forests contain old growth. The park is always open but with limited road access in the winter months. Some of the facilities are only open for June to September summer season.
