We pulled into the ample parking lot and it was a quick walk to Artist Point. Beautiful scenery, wide and safe walkways. It was a blast.

I can see why this is known as Artist Point. The views were brilliant and very varied. It catered for all sorts as there were a variety of viewpoints, walks etc. And yes, there was an artist doing some painting....

What more is there to say, what an amazing view. Truly beautiful. The drive is very steep and long, but it is well worth it. However, I'm pleased my husband was driving. We would definitely return

Yellowstone is so beautiful and so much to seem with not enough time to do it in. I am uploading some beautiful pictures for you to see for yourself. There is lodging there also, so if you... More

There's a reason that this is one of the places that inspired the creation of our nation's national park system. In just about any direction you turn it's like you are walking inside a photograph or postcard of natural beauty. It's crowded mid-day so go early or later to avoid the bus crowds.

This was a longer walk through the trees to the small pots and steam vents. Interesting features. Lots of steps up and over but scenic.

Artist Point is an easy, paved walk that takes you to a great viewpoint of the falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It is truly beautiful and worth the effort to see this vista.
