Lots of color in the canyon

See this and hike to the observation platform so you can see the lower falls drop into the canyon. Lots of different earth/dirt colors. Great for photos from many locations.

We visit the park quite often and this is one of our favorite locations to go to. Breathtaking - just stay away from the edge if you don't like heights. Beautiful indeed.

The day I went it had snowed, (mid May) so the path had some snow in some areas. It is a paved zig zag path down to the lower falls, but worth it! To see the power of the water up close and hear it has an effect that you can't get from pictures. There was large areas of deep... More

This is truly one of the best sights to see in the park. You should make it a point to come to this area for incredibly beautiful scenery. Lots of picture taking opportunities.

The Grand Canyon of the Yellow Stone is steep craggy walls and slippery paths. On a sunny day your pictures' colors will be unbelievable. Take care when choosing a trail, it is slippery going down and steep going back up. But if you are in decent shape it is so worth it.

This was a beautiful area. Even if it was cloudy and cold it in May...it was still beautiful and stunning.

Going on our own was cheaper. We rented a car and drove there. However we could only get to a point and have to take their bus. You have a choice to get your meals included. For $5 it was good. Need to bring water. It is hot there.

The canyon gives you an incredible view of the falls and river. the cliffs are breath taking and the crisp clean air (when it's not busy) adds to the beauty of the canyon.

The falls in the canyon are at Epic Levels due to the rains and melting snowpacks. The crowds are thin due to the colder weather so it is easier to hike along the North Rim trail. At the lower falls overlook 50 ft from the parking lot, look left on top of the rock spires and you'll see an Osprey... More

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone features rough rock, steep sides, waterfalls and rushing waters. Its beauty is indescribable.
