So many beautiful falls in the park and each one majestic in its own way. I was happy our two days of coach touring took us to many of the falls in the Park.

Not as large as the lower falls but still impressive. I recommend seeing both. Visit both rim's of the Yellowstone Grand Canyon

Stayed at the hotel right on the lake. Still in mid May the lake was more or less completely frozen .It is very big and no doubt once thawed provides all sorts of leisure opportunities. Beautiful though.

This s not as impressive as the lower falls which are really tall, but they are a complement to them. The water is crystal clear and there is ample area for picture taking.

We saw this from North Canyon road. You can go down to brink of falls but have many stairs to go down. However it is better to see it from Viewing point.

As with the Lower Falls the Upper Falls was absolutely beautiful, Unfortunately we did not get extremely close to the Falls, but none the less we got a good view from the Vantage point along the road.

The upper falls provided only limited access to me. I have a bad knee. I did get to view it, butt the better view was down a steep trail, I could not make.

Another wonderful place to stop and take in the natural beauty of the Yellowstone National Park. Plenty of parking and the lookout is a easy short walk.
