Really enjoyed seeing the mud pots. They looked like a witches brew and varied colors. One of the best, of many areas, to see the mud pots

This is a great photo location as you can imagine with the name of the location. It looks different at different times of the day so good back more than once.

This is one of the most iconic's views in the park. It is easy to get to, just a short walk from the parking lot. It is beautiful spot. Take the time to look around. Buses sometimes stop so it can be crowed but it is really something to see.

This is the best spot in the park to view the Canyon and the Falls. This is a great place to take the Family Christmas card. It is very popular and a bit overcrowded at peak times.

This is a really nice view of the Lower Falls of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Take the South Rim road and it will dead end in a pretty big parking area. In the Summer: Best bet is to go around 9:30am or so and stake out a vantage point with a good view of the falls. We did... More

This should be on your to-do list for YNP. It offers the most incredible and beautiful view of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River and the Lower Falls. The parking lot is a loop. Park at the tip of the loop for the shortest walk to the (very short) trail leading to Artist Point. One bathroom stall. There's a... More

Beautiful spot, but very popular and crowded. There's a nice hiking trail adjacent to the overlook that isn't heavily travelled, but be careful and definitely stay on the trail due to the loose rocks.

This is the best stop for the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Good parking (although you might have to wait a bit depending on how busy it is!) and great views from the view points!

This is the place to go for fabulous pictures. Breathtaking. It's not a long walk from the parking area and is even paved so wheelchair or stroller accessible.

This was a fun stop, but like many along the loop, parking was tricky and required some creative solutions. It's a nice short walk and it's a good place to see some of the crazy geology up close.
