Sparkling cascade

Watching massive volumes of sparkling clear water cascade down a waterway is never boring. This is why we visit the natural world -- its a cathedral of sorts

I remember the hike taking longer than I actually think it did. I was well worth it though because the views at the end are absolutely amazing!

Yellowstone is unmatched in sheer magnitude and variety of beauty and the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone may be the jewel in the crown for the park. The falls are massive, not on a Niagara or Igauzu Falls scale, but the canyon they rush through is absolutely stunning. Great views of the falls can be had from right above them... More

One of the highlights of Yellowstone. You can either get up close to the falls but its a long walk to the view point, or view the falls and valley from several look out points. I suggest Artists Point for a spectacular scene.

Do not pass up this experience !! it is truly amazing. And if you want to get the best photos. Take the hike down. It is a little bit of a hike on the way back up for the non in shape person, but you can stop a few times, Our favorite picture is from down in front of these... More
