We parked up at Artists Point on the south rim of the Yellowstone Grand Canyon and hiked along to get some spectacular views of the lower and upper falls of the river.

This is one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. A drive to Artists Point is a must on your visit to see the falls and the Yellowstone Canyon.

Every place is beautiful in Yellowstone it seems. Especially with the turquoise water. We stopped to take photos every chance we could for future reference. A must see!

We travelled all over Yellowstone during our visit and the canyon with the river flowing through it was by far the best view in the park.
