I have been to this location a few times over a 50 year period, and can recommend it at anytime of the year, but I think it was most impressive in the winter. Of course, it is hard to get to then, but worth the effort, as it is so peaceful and quiet.

It's beautiful but cannot compare with Grand Canyon. Please have some original names for places within a park like Yellowstone. The falls makes this canyon more beautiful. Do not miss this if you are inside the park.

There are some things that one cannot be so vain to think they can "rate" it. This is such a place. No words I put here can begin to tell you of its beauty. It must be experienced to be believed. I will say, don't miss Uncle Toms hike. It will be on the park map. If you don't like... More

This was one of our favorite sites to visit while in Yellowstone. We hiked up and down at 4 different points. Beautiful views, and good exercise.

You can easily spend a whole day in and around the Grand Canyon. You can walk the rim, or just part of it. Walk down the the bottom of the falls (about a million steps) or walk down to the top of the falls, yep down, not a million steps. This time it's a switchback, much easier, but I wouldn't... More

If you only have one day in Yellowstone this is the place to see! This beautiful canyon is located in the center of Yellowstone. It features the Lower Falls which are over twice as high as Niagara and if you get there early in the morning you can see the rainbow. Great viewing spots include Lookout Point it is almost... More

I can't recommend coordinating your trip with Free ranger tours. Do the Junior ranger stuff if you have kids it makes it more fun for the kids, heck if they allowed it I would do it. We visited this alone and it was gorgeous, but really gave it more appreciation when you understand things and that is the ranger tour... More
