One of the greatest views we got was when we travelling out of Yellowstone and the sun was setting. Incredible sun set pictures were taken and the river made it even more special with the reflection of the light on the water.

Probably the most beautiful panoramic view in Yellowstone that is accessible to almost all visitors. If time is a limitation, I would make every effort to see this view as well as the geyser area around Old Faithful.

Many viewing spots along this dramatic river, including famous waterfalls. Just plain beautiful scenery. Don't miss it.

The Yellowstone River is gorgeous especially as viewed from Artist Point but also from many other overlooks in Yellowstone National Park.

The cutthroat fishing is excellent here. There are also many river float companies, and the clients and guides alike seemed to be having a blast. The scenery is amazing.

Do not miss this, from both the lower and upper lookouts! Breathtaking beauty! It is a bit of a hike, but worth it.

I felt Old Faithful paled in comparison to this gorgeous waterfall! It's twice the height of Niagara, and has streaks of blue-green in it, as though laced with Baja Blast Mountain Dew. :)

Beautiful river, so clear. Wish I had learned how to fly fish before coming on my trip. You could nearly just grab some gorgeous trout right from the water.

Sad to say over the years the bison, elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, moose and antelope populations am to be in a step decline. The last 15 years seems to have done a lot to lessen the population of these beautiful animals. There has been one major addition to the park since then, wolves. We saw 4 on our visit... More
