We spent four days in Yellowstone Park. One of the many spectacular places we visited was the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. The walk down to the falls is easy and not too strenuous. However going back up can be a little demanding. You may need to stop to catch your breathe but the view of the canyon and falls is... More

Be sure to drive through the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Spectacular waterfalls and the yellow stone cliffs that give the part its name.

We entered through the east gate and went counter clockwise around the great loop and reached the north gate late afternoon.

Top speed is 45... More

Amazed views of the raw power of the natural world. The views are inspiring and I see something new every time! Come early or late - this is a popular spot and is very busy!

Don't miss this even if you have a short time to spend at Yellowstone NP! You can not imagine the amount and Fores of the water!

This was likely our favorite stop in the entire park. There is a spectacular view of the entire canyon at the lower falls vantage point that will not disappoint. If you want good pictures, make sure you go in the morning as he sun will illuminate the falls.

This could be argued to be the most beautiful place in the park.. Artist Point is so appropriately named. We photographed rainbows at both the lower and higher falls on this trip
