I really don't want to ruin how awesome the view is by describing this location, just go see it! It is a very short drive off the main road, go all the way to the end.

Easy to get to and the view is amazing. You can see the falls as well as the canyon and the river below. Go at different times as the lighting changes the viewing.

If you are taking photographs in the park (and every one is) Artist Point is not to be missed. It is an easy hike from the parking area.

Yellowstone has SO MUCH to see its almost impossible to select one or two that are the best, rather better to select a group of must see places depending on your time table. This is a MUST SEE. Great photo op. Easy access and Amazing view. Easy to include with the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and the Uncle Toms trail.

You'll need to wake up VERY early to beat the crowds. The park's speed limits, curvy roads, and entrance stations add time to your travel. If you aren't careful, you'll end up having to share the view with tour bus loads of folks, all with their phones, cameras, tablets, and binoculars held aloft in worship.

It is easy to see why the original expedition tour went back to Washington in support of protecting this beautiful land. We took the short hike from the falls parking lot to Artist Point and enjoyed the opportunities to take photos of Artist Point at various vantage points along the route. It's breathtaking!

No trip to Yellowstone is complete without a visit to Artist's Point! Consider being there in the early morning for the right lighting impact.
