Don't stop your research at the online tour.
Celebrate the birth of the first National Park in the United States (and quite possibly the world). Yellowstone Park has been a protected land for the last 140 years. National Geographic is commemorating this landmark occasion in their latest edition of the magazine (available online). Learn about volcanoes and Grizzly Bear attacks as well as environmental issues that continue to plague this large natural reserve.
Or, broaden your horizons, by learning more about the origins of the National Parks in the book: America's Public Lands: from Yellowstone to Smokey Bear and Beyond
