Nice place to visit, but bring your camera. Always crowded and a little difficult to navigate. But once your in position, let the shutter fly. Early morning viewing will provide a opportunity to see a rainbow in the pool at the bottom of the falls.

A breathtaking view of this Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is another a must see place. The landscape is so beautiful, however during our visit (May 2017) the lower trail is close for renovation.

Now folks may differ with me on this one. But frankly I was extremely impressed by what I saw here. In my not so humble opinion, this place can give the Grand Canyon a serious run for it money when it comes to grandeur!

Spectacular falls worth visiting. It gets very crowded so I would recommend early morning or later evening.

Of the areas to visit, this one ranks up there. Go to Artists Point to see the falls. We tried Inspiration Point, but the road was closed to access it.

Yes, you can see much of the park by car, pulling off for scenic views and parking to take short boardwalk strolls.

The distance to the lower entry of the Park is about an hour but the Grand Tetons are in the way and will force you to stop and take them in.

There should be a map of the closures. However, there is one road that takes you throughout the park and that road leads you everywhere. It's like a loop. You can't get anywhere without getting on that road and I highly... More
