This was one of the highlights of our trip as it was very beautiful. The view of the falls and the surrounding gorge walls is nothing short of spectacular. Very crowded in August, but still well worth the short walk from the parking area!

Layers of waterfalls all over the place. Rocks gleaming with color. Rainbows striking rocks. Don't forget your camera!

In Yellowstone, everywhere there is a new 'Artist' or 'Paint', that's definitely a beautiful place. It was a lot of exercise to walk through all of trails. If you have to pick, I would recommend Artist Point, which is the most beautiful place to see the waterfalls and the Canyon.

We stumbled upon this and it was so peaceful and beautiful. The falls and the rocks with the sun, it was serene.

the entire trail from lower falls to the artist point is very Scenic. The lovely shades & hues of the mountains add to the splendour. Beautiful view of the valley, the Yellowstone river and finally the falls from the point I'd splendid indeed. Bliss for your eyes.

This attraction is excellent especially if the weather is clear and the light is good when you will be able to get the best photographs

I love this view down the canyon to the falls. In the morning the angle of the sun sometimes creates a rainbow effect. You can also walk to the other side of the point and look down the canyon to the east which is beautiful and colorful.

This view is amazing. I think its one of the best in the park. The view back to Yellowstone Falls is truly a postcard view. When I got back home and looked at my photos they looked like matte drawings in a movie.
