On March 1, 1872 President Ulysses S. Grant signed the Yellowstone National Park Protection Act into law, making Yellowstone the first National Park and ensuring this 3,500 square miles of land was protected for future generations. 

The photos below show the awe-inspiring beauty of Yellowstone, courtesy of the National Park Service, which celebrates its 100th birthday in August,  and its photographic community, ShareTheExperience.org.
