Beautiful waterfall. Don't miss this one. Be sure to take your tripod for a wonderful picture. I can't think of anything not to like about it.

The drop is 93 metres so you need to like climbing up and down stairs. The trip is worth the view at the bottom. Called Uncle Tom's trail after the first man to take folk to see the falls in the days when there were 500 +steps and a rope ladder!!

One of my favorite moments of the trip was catching site of the falls for the first time between 2 groves of trees. Outstanding.

I've seen photos of these falls my entire life and they can't do justice to the power and majesty of them. You can do as little or as much hiking as you want and each viewpoint is incredible. It would be a shame to visit Yellowstone without seeing this.

The walkway allows you to get up close and personal with this 300' waterfall. You can just feel the power and force of the falls. And there was a near permanent rainbow off to the left and down the canyon. It was spectacular.

It is the lower side of the upper falls, it is a better visual of the entire falls than the upper side. It is very pretty but you have to walk down a hill to see it.

I hit a couple viewpoints for the Falls and Canyon and wasn't disappointed whatsoever. The Falls have some good volume flowing with accompanying scenery.

The water was a good stop along the way. Trails let you get real close. You don't need to spend a lot of time here to appreciate the landscape.

We had a long day making the circle around Yellowstone and arrived at the falls late in the day. We were tired and reluctant to hike to the falls, but we were happy we did. Beautiful views!

It's amazing there. Though the river falls is not huge, it is beautiful and amazing. When it rushed down the river, there were two pieces of rainbows. Awesome!
