I stood there, looking what was happening. There was hot springs going up. We saw lots of hot springs. It was so beautiful. The ground was mostly red. This is gorgeous! It looks like an artist had painted the environment.

It is a nice viewpoint for the waterfall, but very crowded and far away. A good place for photos and overview of the area

If you stand on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and look at its grand waterfall, which is Lower Falls, you will see a steamy canyon glowing brilliant with pastel yellow, pink and orange with broken patches of green. The 308-foot...More

The colors here are beautiful and I can see how it got the name artist point. We could see animal trails in the red wall across from where we were standing. Many people here but worth the stop

Artist point is absolutely stunning. The falls are beautiful. The canyon is equally beautiful. it's called the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and is quite "grand" but much different that the actual Grand Canyon. This is a busy attraction but there are plenty of spots to...More

That is difficult to answer/predict. The only reliable method is to watch the YNP website, under "alerts." Road closure and openings are usually announced.
