Amazing Views!

Beautiful scenery. Definitely take the path down to the bottom of the canyon, its a physical endeavor but well worth it!

Go early to see a rainbow as the sun strikes the water (around 9:30 or 10 am). Can be seen from different venues so stop at all of them. Walk the 238 steps down Uncle Tom's trail, if you are in good shape.

Truly magnificent views and grand canyon in the north. All along the way there are places to stop and see breathtaking views - many times you will get a surprise animal sighting - elk, deer, squirrels, birds, bison, mountain sheep, maybe even a wolf or bear. We have been through this area many times. One can never tire of the... More

This area has amazing photo opportunities, but try to go early or late in the day for the best views of the cliff colors and minerals contributing to the waters in the canyon. By going early, you will also avoid the largest tour buses (which I wish they would outlaw in the park) as it is difficult to share the... More

This is a must see on a Yellowstone trip. There are some great places to take pictures of the falls and the Yellowstone "Grand Canyon". I enjoyed the Chipmunk that came right next to a rock that I was sitting on. He posed for pictures and the number of people walking by did not seem to bother him. It was... More

One of the most beautiful places we've ever seen - Uncle Tom's Trail is a long, steep climb out of the canyon that's well worth the effort!

Visited the Park while spending time with my family in Bozeman. The drive in was beautiful, however, be prepared for crowds in the Park and lots of road construction slowing your progress. We went in the North Entrance in Gardiner near Historic Mammoth Lodge and and amazing Mammoth Hot Springs. Drove as far as we could time permitting. The views... More

WOW! What a view! A must see on your trip through Yellowstone National Park! We did not climb down closer to the falls, as we had our grandparents with us, but the view from Artist's Point was insanely beautiful! You cannot leave the park with out stopping by! (It was pretty windy up at the very top of the lookout.... More

The river has cut this canyon, and mineral springs have spilled their waters & minerals down the slopes of the canyon walls. When viewed at dawn or dusk the walls light up as the light strikes the mineral deposits. Its breathtaking
