Words are not adequate. If you can, go to Artist's Point (South Rim Drive) around 9-9:30 for the rainbow. The time changes, and so does the best angle. When we were there in early October, the rainbow appeared about 9:20, and the best view was from the railing just off the parking lot. I understand that it's earlier in the... More

This is a gorgeous area. We stopped while on our Tauck winter wonderland tour. So beautiful in the winter with all the snow and few people around.

This was one of my favorite spots in Yellowstone, it was just breathtaking. Lots of good views from the "tourist" spots. Must see.

The best location to view the upper and lower falls is from the scenic vantage point located approx 1 mile north of the falls... ...if you're looking for a great background for a family photo, this is it!

The view of the falls is amazing. We went early in the morning to avoid all of the tourists and were successful. If you try to go during the middle of the day, just be aware that this planets packed.
