... youngest members of your party. The views of the canyon and upper and lower falls are among the best.

Don't miss this stop! Just breathtaking. We did the lower falls area and what a view! Lots of wildlife on the way into the falls. There is also hiking in the area.

We saw so many beautiful geysers, that this was a disappointment. It was a long, hot walk, for a tiny bubbling geyser. If you are short on time, skip it. But, don't miss the Fountain Paint Pots in the Lower Geyser Basin and the Midway Geyser Basins!

If you do Artist point, walk Upper Falls Trail to get views without the crowded. However, make sure that you have a map because if you continue the trail around Clear Lake, it can get tricky and is much longer than retracing your steps. back to Uncle Tom's Trail.

This area was a bit of a hike and not as inspiring as the other Geyser/Points. Skip and come back to it if you have the time.

...and here is a tip: Go either early or late. It can get crowded. The view in every direction is stunning and will amaze you. It is also a two for one. You can go the the upper falls and to the canyon rim. Or you can go to Artist Point and seen both at one time.

What can one say--beautiful is the only word that comes to mind when you speak of any of the places in Yellowstone. This too is a must see.

Artist point is the best place to have the full overlook over the Yellowstone river canyon with its waterfalls. At this point you stand just down from the waterfalls and can see the way the river flows and all the surrounding in one view. It's crowded, but don't skip it! Wait for your turn in between all the tourist buses... More

Everybody stops here for the obligatory picture. There is a good reason why. The view of the canyon and the lower falls can't be beat. But, there are about a million people there at any given time. Make sure you get out of the parking lot and onto one of the trails that runs along the canyon for a bit.... More

Way too many people here when the tour buses are around, but the view is fantastic. Crowds to thin out after dinner and are the worst last morning through early afternoon.
